Plot located on a gently sloping hillside, along a small stream. “Lavières” originating from the word lava, does not designates volcanic stones, but large slabs of hard limestone that were used to cover the roofs of houses.
Moderate garnet color. A very fine nose of berries, on the palate, blackcurrant and raspberry dominate with a small tangy touch which enhances the palate and gives an excellent persistence to the wine. A slightly spicy finish.
