LISTEN TO THE WINE
Born from a love of wine and music, La Voix explores French varietals through the sensory and emotional stimulations that are shared by both mediums.
Music through performance and recording conveys a powerful, emotional expression. Likewise, through soil, vineyards, and production, wine elicits an equal effect. Both rely on dynamics and tension created by harmonizing high, medium, and low frequencies.
A memory, a feeling, a nostalgia can be conjured by a single sip, a single note.
