The selection of best Crus
“Intense and complex”
"Le Sang de la vigne " is a registered trademark: Librairie Arthème Fayard, Jean Pierre Alaux, Noël Balen"
This vintage “Le Sang de la Vigne” originates from the heart of the Lot valley in the same terroirs of the South-west as the fictional hero and oenologist Benjamin Cooker and his assistant Virgile Lanssien.
Today this crime series comprises 22 books, all published by Fayard and superbly adapted for the television (on France 3) with Pierre Arditi in the role of Benjamin, who has become the “Maigret of the wine”. Perhaps this special vintage could accompany the reading of your next book in the series.
Vinified with expertise as inspired as that of the talented Benjalin Cooker.
It will excite your taste buds, satisfy your palate and make you a knowledgeable lover of Cahors wine.
