Emile Peynaud’s book “Le Goût du Vin” sparked my passion for wine. It also inspired the creation of this wine and the quest for new wine flavours, adding several grape and terroir profiles together in a new and original equation.
I was born in Montpellier, but the Bordeaux region has become my adopted wine region. In this region, Merlot is widely represented in a variety of expressions. In recent years, I have been exploring the South-West of France and in particular the vineyards in the Lot department, the cradle of the Malbec grape, which I have fallen in love with. It seemed only natural for me to bring you a wine combining the fruit and smoothness of Merlot with the lovely spicy complexity of Malbec.

Vin de France, permitting great freedom of expression!
