Hommage: A tribute
This wine was launched in september, 2014, for the centenary of the first world war, as a tribute to Maréchal Joffre, great patriot native of Roussillon, whose vines were acquiered by Cazes family in 1927. It is also a tribute to the know-how of our Cazes winegrowers who work the soil and the vine in accordance with nature, to extract the best from it.
