Christophe Sornay represents the fifth generation to take over the family farm.

We are here in the tradition. The total surface of the Domaine is 12 hectares.

Fresh citric nose, then quite a supple, harmonious palate with some nice pear and yellow apple. Nice length and a food-friendly personality that’s easy to understand. Drink now.
