Canne - 2017 - Aurélien Houillon
An intense nose of jammy black fruit, flowers and spices... Palate: lovely body, fine, lavish tannins, extremely fruity... Considering this was his first shot at winemaking, Aurélien seems to be a born marksman. Now we’ll have to wait a little to see how the wines evolve in the bottle, but this is extremely promising already.

The savoir-faire instilled in him would then be put in to practice elsewhere and upon...All wines
