La Grande Cuvée Red
La Grande Cuvée Saint-Emilion is the result of a painstaking selection of wines representing the great diversity of vineyard plots across the appellation. Dourthe winemakers play an active role, notably during the harvest and vintage to guarantee wines of the highest quality. The most promising wines, selected for their character and harmony, are matured for 12 months in new French oak barrels.
