L’ Affaire Terre

AOP Ventoux

Our most exclusive wine. From a clay terroir to aging exclusively in a small handmade clay jar, this very special cuvée is delivering the pure and natural expression of our clay-limestone terroir. The purity of the fruit is noticeable. Sweet notes of small red fruits, soft and subtle tannins, for an exquisite finish. Pair with poultry, venison, prime ribs or veal chops, aged cheeses. Keep for seven to 10 years.
