Its grapes come from old vines growing in Aÿ, Écueil and Romery and it undergoes one year’s ageing in large oak casks (foudres) and barrels, making L’Authentique full and powerful on the palate, with hints of vanilla and caramel.
Only 4,837 bottles are produced each year and are aged sur lie for 5 years before disgorgement. Dosage of 4 grams of sugar per litre.
