Origin

Dedicated to Cave de Tain founder Louis Gambert de Loche this exceptional cuvée is made from parcels of fruit owned by the Cave, grown predominantly on granite and fluvio-glacial alluvial soils. Hand-picked fruit is fermented slowly in oak vats before maturation in 225 litre French oak barrels, with regular racking. The wine is aged in total for 16 months before fining and bottling.
