Révélation (aged in oak barrel)

A.O.P. Luberon

Révélation (aged in oak barrel)
The cuvée "Révélation", AOC red Luberon aged in oak barrel, comes from the best Grenache and Syrah vineyards of the cellar. We selected old and well-trellised vines with a small grapes proportion to obtain grapes with an excellent ripeness level and a good concentration necessary to a long ageing in oak barrel.
