About the cuvée
Originating from a biodynamic culture on a terroir of clay and rolled pebbles, this wine is named after the Persian poet and mathematician Omar Khayyâm who wrote verses praising women and wine. Aged for nine months in foudres, the wine has a strange oriental profile as seen by the presence of warm, fruity and spicy notes. The silky tannins and the mouth-watering finish call for pleasant and tasty pairings.
