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!

Tasting Notes: Fruity, fresh, black cherry, cedar, fun to drink, mild tannin

Grape Source: The Right Bank has quite a lot of inexpensive vineyard land. This is the second year where Les Tètes was offered organic certified Merlot from a producer who has been 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.
