The history of this wine once served on the royal tables will be discovered in 2007 in this residence with a prestigious past by Catherine and Isabelle ORLIAC
This secret is discovered by chance, one stormy evening, in the secret of an old piece of furniture:
Manuscripts and objects relating to the prestigious past of the estate and the family and to their great surprise, a letter from the King of France granting protection to their ancestor Jean Orliac_cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_
I, Louis, King of France, hereby decree as follows :
Having Sieur Jean Orliac in high esteem, I grant him, in his capacity as a Merchant, from this day onward and for the duration of full three years, the entire freedom to conduct his affairs as he deems.
Officers, constables and bailiffs, are henceforth under the obligation not to proceed to any arrest of said Sieur Orliac, nor to cause him any kind of hindrance.
Thus it is understood that Sieur Jean Orliac may not be taken into custody, nor be sentenced to imprisonment.
As a consequence, anyone concerned by this decree who contravene these my royal orders will instantly be deprived of his rank and powers and likewise be dismissed of his duties.
If, nevertheless, Sieur Jean Orliac happens to be incarcerated, it is hereby ordered to set free said Sieur Jean Orliac forthwith.
