The Essential
An old Gallo-Roman stronghold firmly anchored to a steep and rocky slope, this superb village with flower-decked little streets reigns supreme over a small but prestigious 50ha territory: the mysterious kingdom of yellow wine. The land, whose sunny slopes are covered with vines, is itself atypical. But the magic is also worked in secret in the wine cellars, where this "solid gold wine", which seemingly refuses to be rushed, develops slowly over many years.
