100% Cabernet Franc. Previously a blend of two terroirs, Terres Chaudes now hails exclusively from the Poyeux terroir, in Chaintres, near the heart of the appellation.  The vines for this cuvée average about 40 years of age, and come from the coteau, or slope, where there is very shallow soil before the vines roots hit the limestone bedrock. All of the fruit here is destemmed and fermented in cement, with some foot stomping, followed by maturation in 60-hectolitre, neutral, tronconic wooden vats (fût tronconique). BIBENDUM
