Cœur de Cris – red
From time to time, worth waiting for…
Les cris parcel is a monopoly of our estate, situated above the wine cellars. The first vines were planted by Henry Pellé in 1967.
For this wine (produced only in certain vintages), we select grapes from the heart of the vineyard, where the bedrock breaks through. From here, we obtain a delicate wine of great tension, to be laid down for a few years.
