Jean-Bernard Larrieu makes highly expressive wines from his vineyard farmed organically since 2005. The 2010 vintage seems to have been a great success for him. Dressed in pale gold, this cuvée presents light aromas of muscat, followed on airing by aromas of raisined grapes, dried fruits and brioche.
