Cabernet Franc wine hand-harvested from a younger parcel of vines (approximately 2.3 hectares). These vines thrive on Aeolian sand sitting on clay which is derived from flint. Destemmed and then fermenting for 15 to 20 days, quite a bit of pumping over to extract a luscious colour. Classic CF notes of red fruits, bell pepper, velvet curtains, cherry. High toned acid. François and Pascaline Plouzeau maintain what could almost be considered an immaculate vineyard near the village of Richelieu which lies south of Tours quite close to the Chinon region. Here, they practice biodynamically and are certified by Ecocert and Biodyvin. A feature of their lovely wines is the wonderful set of labels produced by local artists that reflect the naming of the wine.
