history
In 1957, around forty winegrowers grouped together to confront the economic difficulties of the era, pooling far more than mere financial concerns. At the time, Robert, Marcel, Yvon, Geneviève and the others, hailing from the same terroir, hewn from the same rock and sharing the same time-honoured values, set up their cooperative at the top of the hill in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg. “They chose to share their experience, their expertise and their dreams„

Intense rosé color. Delicate bouquet combining elegance and roundness. Tiny, persistent, even bead. Fresh and lively on the palate, which makes it an excellent aperitif. Bottles should be stored on their side in a relatively cool place.
