He has done it again with the fabulous 2015 vintage of the Pic Saint Martin and gave it an even higher score of 92/100 🍷🇫🇷
Where to buy
Domaine de Cantaussel has a very low production of extremely high quality wine. Only 40.000 bottles are produced per year and most of it will stay in France. It is not sold in Luxembourg. More of a friends to friends sort of deal.
