For ages, philosophers have been lauded for contemplating the nature of existence. Nonsense. While we take our winemaking very seriously, our 2013 Philosopher shuns the ivory tower. This bottle is a celebration of life,
beauty and the pursuit of imbibification.
The Philosopher delivers a cerebral accompaniment to lamb, beef or pork dishes. It can also be enjoyed with cheese, particularly with hard and sharp cheeses such as Roquefort, Beaufort, Comté and Emmental.
