Story

Location
Situated north of the Loire, between Beauce and Sologne, the "Orléans-Cléry" appellation covers approximately 30 hectares and is made from the Cabernet Franc grape variety alone.
Terroir
Vines of around thirty years old on a terroir of siliceous gravel with high reflectance ensure that the grapes reach optimal ripeness. A deliciously fruity wine, full of character.
Vinification
Cold pre-fermentation maceration to ensure aromatic extraction of the grapes, followed by traditional fermentation. Maceration for a fortnight with gentle extraction, allowing the poly-phenolic potential of the grapes to be extracted.
Ageing
Aged in our cellars before bottling.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%
