Eclipses n° 12 2015

Eclipse is a unique wine. We only produced it when the conditions are bring together to birth a long
lasting cabernet franc. From the oldest vines of the coteaux, the grapes are finely selected to produced a
full body juice, intense and deep. A sweet extraction tamed in oak barrel. Be ready.
