The 2013 Emilien is a bright, fruit-forward example from Le Puy. The purity, complexity and freshness of this show-stopping wine is true to their style. The elegant red fruits and fragrant minerality are an expression of its unique limestone rock. This wine shows elegance that is unrivalled in the region. Some consider it the most Burgundian expression of Bordeaux.
