Story

The wine
The vines extend over the hillsides of the Saumurois and Anjou area.
Terroir
The main characteristic of the region is its clay-limestone soil: this soft white rock called tuffeau allows the vine to put down good roots and a moderate water supply.
In the vineyard
The plots are selected at the approach of the harvest, in August and September, for their ability to offer grapes of beautiful maturity and rich aromas of fresh fruit. The early harvest is carried out around mid-September to preserve the taste balance.
Vinification
Direct pressing to extract a nice aromatic potential. Vinification in thermo-regulated vats then bottled in spring to preserve freshness and fruitiness.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%

Advice
