WHAT THE WINEMAKERS ARE SAYING
A wine of immediate seduction, endowed with a beautiful freshness provided by lively acidity. Nice aromas of redcurrant jelly, elderflower, and smoked tea...
The Cellier des Dames wines narrate the story of many of the “Dames de Bourgogne“, who, in their way, shaped what Burgundy became. At the forefront of the historical scene, these ladies associated with (and sometimes, but not always, married) the famous Dukes of Burgundy. These handcrafted wines have been created in their honour and in recognition of the impacts they had on the region, its vineyards, and its famous appellations. You’ll find the story of each Dame on the back label of their cuvée.
Isabelle-Claire-Eugénie de Habsbourg, also called Isabelle of Austria, is the granddaughter of Catherine de Medici by her mother and of Charles V by her father. She will carry the title of Duchess of Burgundy for more than 35 years until her death on December 1, 1633.
