    The charisma and discretion of Jean Leon made him party to many curious anecdotes involving famous film stars, who for him were like family. Years later, and in honour of his own family, he produced this wine from the vineyard named after his daughter.

    Very intense nose with remarkable buttery notes perfectly balanced by tropical fruit and a hint of toast and spices. Fresh upon entry, giving way to a long evolution across the palate and lively acidity on the finish.
