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„
Tasting notes
Lovely pink color with brilliant highlights. Fine, persistent bead. Freshness and finesse: fine, lively bouquet with fresh, red-berry fruit aromas (wild strawberries and cherries). Lively initial impression on the palate and good aromatic intensity. Well-balanced on the palate, following through with a fresh, wonderfully subtle aftertaste.).
Food pairing
Enjoy chilled (46-50°F) as an aperitif (quiches & savoury cakes), with desserts (red-berry fruit sorbet, chocolate tart, dried-fruit desserts, with honey or red-berry fruit), or simply for pleasure.
Aging potential
