On the nose, all the flavors of red and black berries (blackcurrant, blueberry) combine marvelously. Spicy aromas, ground black pepper and a hint of violets emerge. The palate is opulent, rich, without heaviness, elegant, tender and deep. 
The finish is long, both in the mouth and retro-olfaction. This wine seduces us with its freshness and explosive youth!

For 16 centuries, the Saint Honorat Island shelters the monks of the Abbey of Lérins who live to the rhythm of the monastic life and community in the respect of the rule of Saint Benedict made of prayer (ora) and work (labora). They cultivate, ancestral way, a small vineyard of 8.5 ha. Alchemy, probably unique in the world, created by the work of the brothers, the clay-limestone soil, loamy and sandy, rich in organic plant matter, the maritime influences and the important sunshine of the island confers its singularity and its typicality of this exceptional terroir. Through these wines, the brothers want to highlight their values: the love of a job well done, fraternity and the search for excellence.
