It's because we refused to all be forced into the same mould and chose to continue cultivating the Négrette , this black grape variety which is unique in the world and develops a fascinating aromatic intensity, that we can offer you extraordinary red and rosé wines.- The wine growers/makers of the Fronton PAO.
The wine growers/makers of Vinovalie – Cuvée Astrolabe
Patrick Tissonnières, wine-grower/maker from father to son, has his feet firmly planted on the Earth. If “l’Astrolabe” calls to mind the ship of La Pérouse (the French equivalent of Captain Cook) or an old instrument for measuring the inclination of the stars, for this lover of wines to lay down the Astrolabe is first and foremost a dense, pure Négrette wine, which he likes to marry with well-ripened cheeses.
When you know that Patrick is the kingpin of the Conservatoire de la Négrette, you realise that this exceptional grape variety is very important to him. And if he takes to observing the stars, it’s with a glass of Fronton in his hand !
