L’Esprit de Saint-Louis is a haute expression, structured and charming cuvée, made from grapes from our oldest parcels. The blend consists of 85% Négrette and 15% Cabernet Franc. The classic winemaking, starting with a long maceration and being followed by 2 or 3 délestages, lasts 3 to 4 weeks. Each grape variety is vinified separately with temperature regulation. Finally, 100% of the wine is aged in oak barrels for 12 to 24 months, giving it great ageing potential.

The selection of old vines provides quality grapes. Cabernet franc brings elegance and finesse to the powerful fruit of négrette. The result is seductive, based on a balance between aromatic expression, tannic structure and freshness. A beautiful palette of black fruits, very spicy, and the chic of ripe Cabernet underlined by sober ageing that leaves the wine fluid and crisp.
