Overview

Cuvée Nicolas is named after Jean-Marc and Eliane’s son and comes from a blend of Grenache grown in the red schist soils of the foothills of the Pyrenees in Asprès with Grenache from the back schist soils of Maury. These low yielding vines (19hl/ha) are around 65 years old and are planted on terraces with southern and southeastern exposure.
