About the Name: One of Zev Rovine's favorite singers of all time is Jacques Brel. He has a famous song called Au Suivant , which bascially means "On to the next one!" So this name is meant to encourage everyone to keep opening bottles!
Grape Source: The Right Bank has quite a lot of inexpensive vineyard land. Les Tètes was offered organic certified Merlot from a producer that was having a hard time selling his domaine bottles. Les Tètes said yes to the proposal, managed the harvest, and did the vinification in the winery where the grapes are grown.
Vintage Notes: "The best 2016s are powerful, richly layered, vibrant and stunningly beautiful, not to mention incredibly delicious and alluring. For so many wines and estates, 2016 is an epic vintage." - Vinous 1/18/2019
