Story

The wine
This cuvée, from a plot of Cabernet Franc, has been produced organically for over ten years.
Location
Located at the gates of Montreuil Bellay, on a plateau overlooking the river "Le Thouet".
Terroir
Developed on marly formations of the Jurassic massif, the terroir offers very good viticultural potential.
In the vineyard
The work in the vineyard is carefully done throughout the year. Thus, the environment, water and air resources, and the quality of the soil are preserved and biodiversity is maintained.
Vinification
Reception on a sorting table to avoid any crushing of the berries. Long maceration (35 days) in a wide, low tank offering a large contact surface between the skins and the juice. The pomace is kept in immersion to ensure a slow and progressive diffusion of the tannins, while preserving the aromas.
Ageing
Bottled in June and aged for several months in our underground cellars.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%
