Nadege Lelandais is Les Vignes Herbel. What started as a joint effort with her ex-husband in 2005 is her solo effort now. The wines reflect her feminine divine and warm radiance. Medium bodied, slightly spicy and soften tannins.
Grapes are hand-picked and fermented in fiberglass. Aged for several months in used barrel. Crunchy, red cherries, red currant and foraged raspberries. Earthy but fresh.
