Story

Location
The vines are located in Saint Cyr en bourg, an early terroir in the heart of the Saumur Champigny appellation, and have been managed organically for several years.
Terroir
The terroir is clay and limestone.
In the vineyard
Careful work in the vineyard throughout the year and precise monitoring of ripeness allows the Cabernet franc grape variety to be sublimated and gives this wine its full character. Thanks to organic farming, water and air resources, the environment and the quality of the soil are preserved and biodiversity is maintained.
Vinification
Grapes harvested at full maturity after berry tasting. Traditional vinification. Long maceration (20 days) with gentle extraction of the polyphenolic potential.
Ageing
Aged in our tufa galleries, protected from light and temperature variations (6 to 8 months before bottling).
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%
