catacombs, convents collegiate church, Château du Roy... Bathed by the beneficial influence of the river, the terroir shows a map of geological variety from which emerge lands particularly favorable to the birth of the greatest vintages. On these soils of immemorial wine-making tradition, prestigious wines of international renown are born, which Louis XIV in his time already called «Nectar of the Gods».
