The beginnings of the estate date back to the early 1900s. Mr Besson, Dominique Morel’s great-grandfather, moved to the town of Émeringes. Besson was the inventor of the first filter press, for which he won a bronze medal at the Concours Lépine in 1910. He set up a distillery and a cooperage near the small 2-hectare (5-acre) vineyard.Today, the estate extends over 18 hectares (nearly 45 acres) and produces 12 appellations.
Deeply purple colour, garnet hue. An uplifted nose of crushed black fruits and bubblegum with a little dried herbs adding a savoury note.
