Hommage à Odette Bernard 2016, AOP Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red


Michel Bernard wanted to pay tribute to his mother Odette, who devoted herself all her life to the family estate.

This cuvée is the result of a selection made from plots of very old vines, some of which were planted in 1903.

It expresses all the style of the Bernard Family: the balance between power, fruitiness and finesse.

A great wine produced only in the best years!

Ageing potential: from 15 to 20 years
