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 ‘Traditional Method’ sparkling wine is made from Pinot Noir and aged in the bottle on lees for 18 months to allow it to develop complex, perfumed notes of wild strawberry, redcurrant and liquorice.
