This is the top wine from the estate, a pure expression of the local Négrette. It is a wood-aged wine, from organic grapes, rich and structured. With intense tannins, spice and young fruit and wood notes, it is a perfumed wine with a future. The name, in the southern French langue d'Oc (Occitan), means “everything that's necessary,” or a complete wine. Drink from 2018.
