Description:
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 aromas of red fruits and citrus zest. It is a fresh, fruity and very nicely balanced wine.
