Overview

There are vintages that have had a difficult journey from their birth and that find themselves in adversity only to pleasantly surprise in the end. This is the case of Rouillac 2021 - which the climatology has not spared - but which is the fruit of tireless work in the vineyard, to bring out the best and nothing but the best, while respecting nature and what it gives us.
