Les Péchés range
L'Emporeur, Domaine La Louvière, AOP Malepère

This strong and proud wine has been matured for 14 months in oak barrels. Specifically chosen grapes, handpicked in our best vineyards and carefully handled in the cellar, makes L'Empereur what he is: the Domaine La Louvière’s ruler of the pack. Dominant, yet sensitive... complex, but accommodating ... he has naturally become our top red wine and the equal partner of La Souveraine.
