HISTOIRE D'A

A play on the famous pornographic novel Histoire d’O by Pauline Réage - this parcel makes a very “sexy” wine and the name seemed appropriate.
In both La Savante and Histoire d’A we use whole clusters during fermentantion to highlight the texture and graininess of the wines. La Savante is more mineral, vertical, with spicy red fruits. Histoire d’A is more generous due to the greater sun exposure, with cinnamon, clove and a perceived sweetness to the tannins.
