Each of these wines comes from single vineyards with a careful selection of the best plots in order to obtain the best grapes and thus produce those great wines.
We only use our two noble varieties: Viognier and Syrah, with 100% Viognier for Verité and 100% Syrah for Bardou Saga Pegot.
The red wines are aged in French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months.
