Alix Roque spent time making wine in Burgundy before heading home to her mothers vineyards in the heart of Faugeres. Wines from this region often show the warm and dry climate in their fruit, however Alix uses Burgundian techniques, picking early and at night making Le Presbytere a fresh, harmonious red.

It benefits from opening a hour or two (or more) before you want to drink it.
