It was in Latour de France that he chose to set up his domain. Occultum Lapidem is the first expression of this terroir. Then there followed 6 years of reflexion, observation and analysis to produce a precious, rare wine: v.i.t. The story continued near a little village called Lesquerde. Steep, craggy limestone, arid soil, battered by the tramontane wind… A wine wriggled free from the grasp of nature: L’esquerda.

Pairs well with pasta, vegetarian and poultry dishes, lean fish, and aperitif.
