The cuvée Zélée (as in zealous, or zealot) is selected by Aurélien each year from his favorite barrels. This vintage is focused on one of his best parcels in Limony, a selection of other barrels is blended in each year. The first vintage produced of this cuvée was in 2016, with the goal of crafting a wine with more freshness, length, and capacity to age.
