WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

Delicious flavours and delicacy for this irresistible Marsannay worthy of a Premier Cru!

And we understand why in this perfect synthesis of the delicious Pinot Noir and the delicate pepper of the Kampot. A real heart to heart for this Marsannay that is one of the greats, full of charm and sophistication!
