“A top of the range, a collector’s wine worthy of a place in the cellar among the wines of the heart. To be purchased in crates to open a bottle from time to time and play with the evolutions. A prestigious bottle to share with friends, with loved ones, as a gesture of affection, as a cuddle given with feeling and a pinch of jealousy. Gustatory power and olfactory complexity outline the playing field of citrus, floral, spicy and mineral scents. Wine that also lends itself to an intimate moment, a meditation wine accompanied by the notes of good music, in complete solitude and in harmony with ourselves. ” Gus’s team
