Elaboration method

This wine comes from a harvest selected for its unique terroir and mature grapes. Fermented in oak casks, of which 30% are new. During the first three months, the cellar master stirs the wine to dislodge the dregs and restore their state of suspension for more volume and richness. Overall the aging process lasts 12 months.

Cuvée Natashquan
« "In the "rare wines" category, this cuvee named in honour of Gilles Vigneault is definitely worth a visit. Its blend of hybrid and noble vines (Chardonnay, Vidal and Seyval) proves to be most successful, rich and fruity at the same time. It tastes Québec and that's what I love !"
