This cuvée is the fruit of a marriage between Frédéric's grandparents. Each was from a winemaking family, but left home to create their own project in the 1950s. The young couple could only afford humble vines in Côtes-du-Rhône, but they chose vineyards laden with galets, which resemble the best neighboring terroirs, and slowly grew the domaine over many decades.
