Thomas’ wines have aroused a lot of curiosity in this rather traditional region located just a stone’s throw away from Côte de Py. Just like the work of his favorite artist Mobius, Thomas' wines are right at the crossroads between history and ultra modernity.

Made with grapes that grew on highest slopes of the estate and that has partly aged in old barriques, this cuvée features incredible poise, like a charismatic person that lights up a room. Indulging texture, the blackberries and liquorice are running the catwalk. The tannins are matching perfectly with one's tongue as if both were clogs that were meant to clic.
