The monks of the abbey of Lérins produce this Saint Lambert cuvée, 100% Mourvèdre.
Mourvèdre is a grape variety of Spanish origin.
Very late, it is naturally at ease in the coastal vineyards.
The monks of the Abbey of Lérins develop this original grand cru which imposes itself as a wine, rich, elegant and smooth.
The Bettane Desseauve guide considers it to be one of the best in France.
Pascal Paulze, sommelier of the restaurant l'Oasis de Mandelieu (06) (two stars in the Michelin Guide and rated 16/20 Gault et Millau) described it as the best Mourvèdre he has ever tasted.

Vintage 2016 tasted in August 2015 brut de fus and vats, en primeurs.
The year 2016 is characterized by good rainfall in winter, but low from spring and a sunny summer without being excessively hot during July, August. However, the very hot days in September were an ordeal for the pickers. The rare rains in April favoured a good development of flowers on the vines. The harvest was larger than the previous year, with a later maturity but a good sanitary state.
A beautiful robe with an intense red color.
The nose is very expressive with a beautiful palette of oriental spices and ripe fruits.
The mouth is well built, centered and without tannic firmness.
