We recently received the latest results we expected. We were curious to know the wine ratings we had sent to the famous Wine Spectator magazine, and our patience was rewarded.

Ambassadrice IGP Pays d’Oc – Collection 2018

Remember … Summer 2017 we learned that our vintage Grande Réserve Chardonnay Roussanne 2015 was elected Cuvée Ambassadrice IGP Pays d’Oc.
The aim of this competition is to select the best IGP Pays d’Oc of the appellation to promote it to the export market. Twenty wines each year travel around the world to promote the brand.

This year, Grande Réserve Chardonnay Roussanne has been selected again with our 2016 vintage. We are very happy to be part of this adventure alongside this very dynamic appellation.
