Region: Loire Valley, FRA
Variety: Gamay, Cot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Gascon Noir
Organic farming, no sulphur
A blend of Gamay, Côt, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, and Gascon Noir... fermented together. Vines grown on a flinty clay soil, cultivated with the least intervention possible; vine treatments are made from nettle, horsetail, flowers of sulphur and minute doses of Bordeaux mixture. Matured 30 months in barrels, no new oak. Neither fined nor filtered, and without added sulphites. As Claude tells us at the end of a tasting, good wine isn’t bad for our health, it comforts the body and spirit.
