Cuvée des Hussards 2012 Premier Cru

Named in homage to Napoleon's light cavalry--who were the first to use sabrage--Cuvée des Hussards is powerful and expressive. FJF craft the wine from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes from vieilles vignes of more than 40 years old on chalky soils. The 2012 vintage is regarded as one of reference.
