Akoibon - 2021 - Laurence Manya Krief
Nose carried by notes of crushed fruit, strawberry, cherry, blackberry, sweet spices, pepper, just a hint of black olive... A juicy wine, lots of finesse, beautiful balance.

Laurence Manya-Krief is sincere, upright, and determined... Formerly a sales director in ready-to-wear fashion, at 35 years old she dropped her career for a life of vines. Today, our taste buds are thrilled that she did! She may be petite, but she cultivates some of the most difficult plots in France. Her steep slopes are completely incompatible with mechanised farming, so she depends instead...All wines
