This cuvée ‘Les Bobines’ refers to the little wooden cylinders on which the silk threads are wound after ‘the weaving’. This process of twisting increases the strength of the silk.

On the Palate
Packed with flavours of stone fruits alongside hints of spice. Full bodied but by no means cloying. Lovely long finish.
