No Score but a Great Tasting Note:  
Stunning aromatics and excellent structure. The nose features aromas of small red berries and piles of fall leaves, some pencil lead and pyrazine spice. A red fruited, charming and approachable now unctuous palate shows polished and fine tannins. This wine can be kept for 3-5 years or more but is ready to go now.

Gravel and Siliceous soil produce this Cabernet Franc situated on hillsides and the tableland in West Chinon. The vineyards are managed using an integrated farming system based on biodynamic methods, as well as control and testing of the grapes' maturity level in the laboratory before harvest. Grapes are harvested manually and carefully selected before destemming.

The fruit is picked a little earlier and fermented a little cooler than the traditional top cuvées to preserve its freshness and brightness. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The free-run and press wine juices are separated. Maceration takes 2 to 3 weeks, and racking is performed traditionally. The wine is allowed to mature in stainless steel vats for 9 to 10 months according to the potential of the vintage.
