The Wines

The two wines are derived from the Pianiccia plateau, which provides a chalky-clay terroir, situated between the sea and the mountains. This area benefits from a mild climate with cool night-time temperatures and good ventilation for the vines. Prestige du Président rouge is a wine made from selected parcels. Prestige du Président rosé is elaborated from a night-time harvest, the skin of which is macerated to ensure freshness and finesse. Its name – “Président” evokes the cellar’s best wine, that was traditionally set aside for its president. As a result, its greatest wine has been transformed into a brand. Prestige du Président 2013 received a score of 92/100 from Parker.
