2017 Cuvée Constantin Chardonnay 1.5L
Our Cuvée Constantin is a nod to the original Flâneur. When Charles Baudelaire first wrote about the Flâneur, the connoiseur of life, Constantin Guy was his inspiration. Constantin was a stroller,
observer and painter of the crowds and the streets of Paris in the mid-19th century.
