WINEMAKER NOTES: In this sunny land in the south of France, they constantly cherish their land to stir and inspire us: artisanal work to enhance the fruit and create concentrated wines with remarkable balance and freshness. Les Illustres is the story of 8 winegrowers who have pooled their expertise in order to craft an outstanding wine. This is a unique cuvée that draws its energy through the ancient silos dug by the Romans out of the soft rock of molasses at the Oppidum d’Ensérune, the famous archaeological site listed as a ‘Monument National de France’ where the remains of an ancient village still stand. 19 500 bottles produced.

TASTING NOTES: Dark red appearance with hints of purple. Complex bouquet of cardamom, alcohol-soaked fruit and tobacco leaf. Liquorice notes and a wonderful freshness on the palate. Intense finish supported by caramelised notes.
