Only 35 producers still farm this historic grape on just 128 acres in the Loire Valley.
DFW SpeakWe love wines that intrigue.We love this rare grape and Roger Tessier’s deep commitment to allowing the fruit and wine to be the focus of nature’s work. Deep complex minerals are the foundation for pretty florals and citrus that softly integrate. DFW LABS
