Licorne Cuvée

The excellence of the Aspras

The Unicorn is a symbol of strength and beauty. Combined with the family’s motto « Nosce Te Ipsum » (Know yourself), it has been representating the Latz family emblem since the 18th.
Those wines are confidential and only risen in wooden precious barrels. A mysterious alchemy operates between wine and wood and gives all its fame to Cuvée Licorne.
