From the Cru of Goulaine, the Les Noëlles vineyard plot, planted in 1936, creates exceptional wines. Harvested by hand and aged for 36 months on its lees in underground vats (concrete + glass paste tiles) in order to highlight the alchemy of a great terroir combined with the know-how of the artisan winemaker. Excelsior was born then and it is since, one of the most popular vintages by international tables, enlightened amateurs and the specialized press.
