THIS WINE’S STORY

Antéa means “in the olden days” in Latin. Jérôme has chosen this word to name this cuvée in order to remind us that the Malbec grape is an old and typical grape variety from Touraine. It disappeared at the beginning of the 19th century, but they decided to plant it again during the 70’s in the same plots as one century before.
