This wine is part of the first vintage produced with the guidance of Stéphane Derenoncourt. We have chosen to also produce a single varietal wine using the exceptional quality of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from our terroir which produce from the limestone plateau as opposed to the more gravelly soils of the Medoc. The result is smooth, delicious wine with full flavour but with less harsh tannins.
La Folie d’Ana brings together the essence of the soil with the sensual roundness of the grapes along with the magic of the Maker. Flowers, fruit and spices aromas, strong tannins with the elegance of the oak that weave together to create a round wine on the palate with great personality.
La Folie d’Ana has just been awarded a Bronze Medal at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards in September 2014!
