Achilleus Blanc Magnum
A tribute to Achille, our ancestor, "Achilleus Blanc" is a wine of excellence from the finest plots of old Marsanne vines in the estate. Slightly woody, both opulent and fresh, with aromas of peach and apple with a hint of vanilla, this flamboyant wine is a link between past and present.
