STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Owned by Boisset Family estates and run by Jean-Claude, they own a large merchant business in Burgundy and many other wineries in France. This is a blend of carefully selected Merlot grapes from vineyards around California.
The label pays homage to the local mountain ranges and the cooling fog which envelopes them and has a huge influence on Californian viticulture.
