Story

Location
The vines extend over the hillsides of the Saumurois and Anjou regions.
Terroir
The main characteristic of the region is its clay-limestone soil : this soft white rock called tuffeau allows good rooting of the vine 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 (citrus fruit, blackcurrant buds). The early harvest is carried out around mid-September to preserve the taste balance.
Vinification
Selection of plots with the aromatic potential of ripe fruit. Direct pressing. Vinification to enhance the varietal and fermenting aromas and to bring a nice complexity. Light settling at low temperature. Fermentation between 16 and 20°C.
Ageing
Matured on fine lees for four months and bottled in spring to preserve freshness.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%
