XV du Président 2018
The latest, and hugely acclaimed, release of this BIG favorite; crafted from some of the Languedoc-Roussillon’s oldest vines (many over 100 years old). Miserly yields mean intense flavors in the glass, and 'XV' brims with plum, fig, and wild herbs.
Nespolino Sangiovese Rubicone IGT 2018
