These two wines are part of our Haute Couture range. They reveal Gamay’s exceptional character. Assisted by a dozen growers, we have selected parcels from our hillside vineyards, managed according to specific requirements. The grapes are hand-picked when fully ripened, thereby allowing us to increase the crisp and fresh character of our wines made from Gamay. The Decanter World Wine Awards (May 2015) have attributed a gold medal to Les Combes and a silver medal to Memoria.
