In the historic Verdun Area (WW1) you are really in a 'no mans land' for wine producers with only 10 locally. The soil here is multiple forms of limestone (perfect for aromatic acid varieties like these). The wine is made oxidatively to add complexity to these wines. This is an exceptionally complex wine with savoury elements matched to sweeter fruit. One for the treasure hunters out there.
