A wine made from a selection of the estate’s oldest vines, l’Audacieux boasts the kind of allure reserved for those who are convinced of their own power. Aged for 20 months in 500-litre new oak barrels, this wine offers great concentration, a noble character, and aromas of lively and ripe fruit, which mingle elegantly with subtle nuances from oak ageing. Its great depth and supple structure, without even a trace of harshness, lend this wine the potential to improve over time.
