Pithon-Paille "Dessus Narçay" Chinon 2013, Cabernet Franc
It comes from 50 year old vines, the nose is rustic, dominated by red fruits, then wet leaves, mushrooms and puffs of horse mane. The taste is solid, very fresh and tannic. The finish is long and pleasant.
Bourgueil Graviers Rouge 2014, Cabernet Franc
Aromaticity of berries on the nose, red petal flowers, hints of balsamic and herbaceous return. The palate is full, satisfied, consistent with the nose, with the pleasantness of red fruits. Spectacular freshness that makes it compulsively drinkable.
Grolo Rouge 2020Blend of native varieties
It comes from a blend of indigenous grapes of the area, lots of fruit on the nose as well as in the throat, spicy. Excellent minerality that gives structure to the wine and counterbalances the very good freshness. Soft tannins, long finish.

The Chenin Blanc grape variety in the Loire region, from different soils and appellations, produces a variety of wines ranging from dry to semi-dry to sweet/bottled. This non-aromatic vine wonderfully translates the "Terroir" of origin. The vines are worked manually using organic farming methods.
The harvest is carried out in several stages in order to collect the grapes at the right moment of ripeness or drying.
The wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts in order to fully respect the value and differences of each vintage. In the vineyard and in

Agricultural practices, in the vineyard and in the cellar, are done following the lunar calendar. The wines are aged in wooden barrels for 12 to 24 months. The dry wines are produced from grapes grown on the best soils
of the "Côtes", from ripe, golden, but not botrytized grapes to better preserve the freshness and fruitiness. For the
sweet wines the main objective is not the quantity of sugars, but the search for the aromas and flavours conferred
to wine from the magic of botrytis cinerea.
