Brothers Cyril and Fabien tend to 15 hectares, with new plantings of Menu Pineau, Chenin Blanc, Grolleau, Sauvignon Blanc, and Cabernet Sauvignon joining their original Cabernet Franc parcels.

Sand and gravel is typical of Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil, but some parcels are also rooted in limestone-rich clay. Everything is done by hand in the vineyard, including grassing and ploughing between rows, and the occasional addition of biodynamic compost.

Herbaceous and lively nose that overlay crunchy, brambly red fruits with cracked peppercorn and a smokey undertone. A lithe palate that has a wild edge to small sweet fruits and a lick of grainy tannin that draws it all together. PWS
