Overview

Les Quartiers is an east-facing, 1.5-hectare parcel located at the bottom of a slope where limestone gravels have accumulated over eons. This rocky, terre blanche terroir with its sheltered exposure results in an age-worthy wine with chiseled structure, with brambly berry flavors, blackcurrant, and fresh acidity.
