Do you know the history
of our vintage "Péché du Roy"?
Louis XIV was a fine gourmet. It's no secret to anyone, fruit and sweets were his favorite. On his way to the Bourgeais on October 3, 1650 to sign the peace treaty ending the first Bordeaux Fronde, he made a rather unexpected sweet discovery. On this particularly hot day for the period, he was offered to refresh himself by tasting the tasty peaches of Haut-Guiraud. He admired them and regaled himself with a regalian attitude. Since then, vines have totally replaced orchards in Haut-Guiraud. It is this that gives birth to our prestigious cuvée "Péché du Roy". Enjoy it. You'll see, you will not be able to stop yourself from finding it a touch of peach.
