|Name||« Rosace des Vents » is a tip of the hat to
the 2 winds of the region, the ‘Cers’ from the North-West and the
‘Marin’ which blows off the Mediterranean. A ‘rosace’ des vents is a
graphic way of showing how much wind has come from which direction.
« Série Electron Libre (Free Electron Series) » because this is a wine made in a spontaneous style, inspired by free-thinking.
