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 sparkling wine is made from Folle Blanche for freshness, and Chardonnay for elegance, then aged for 18 months for finesse.
