Vanessa Albessard-Aubert is the descendant of a family of wine makers. She has grown up between the vineyards and cellars her ancestors have cultivated on the Right Bank of Bordeaux since 1732. In 2015, she decided to honor the legacy of her father, Daniel Aubert, by naming her cuvée after him. Her philosophy is simply, in order to make a great wine, it must simply elaborate on and retain the purest expression of the terroir.
