As a tribute to Joseph Gregoire, the first Lieubeau, who was left abandoned as an orphan in the porch of the hospital in Nantes in 1816, our emblem is a child wearing a hat, a symbol of family history and nature. This range of fresh, fruity and elegant varietals illustrates the beautiful diversity of the Loire Valley. This wine has a hazelnut and brioche nose, and a well-balanced, textured palate with notes of white fruits and toast.
