This “green” Cuvée comes from grapes whose vines have grown completely naturally without herbicides or chemical treatments. The only inputs used are allowed in organic farming, in accordance with the European Regulation No 834/2007.
Winemaking is also more natural, so no added sulfur (only additive allowed in oenology).
This wine allows more aromatic complexity and better wine digestibility.
