There are several chalky layers from base of the Méron slopes up to the Loudun fault.
Soil with clayey and silty sand. The very hard limestone soil contains light blue flint. It has good drainage capacity and is conducive to early ripening.
Completely destemmed and vatted for 15-20 days, depending on the year. Fermented in temperature-controlled vats.
Bottled early in cellars dug out of tufa, where it continues to age in bottle, protected from light and variations in temperature.
Cabernet franc : 100%


Tasting notes
Brilliant crimson colour. Intense nose of ripe black fruit (blackcurrant, prune, cherry) and tobacco leaves. Round, full-boded, and well-structured with assertive, but round tannin. Warm, long finish of ripe fruit.
Food and wine pairings
This wine is delicious with red and white meats, and has enough character to go with strongly flavoured dishes and cheeses.
