Where and How?
This is organically grown Cabernet Franc from a single vineyard named Les Pouches, grown on sandy limestone.
The grapes are rigorously sorted (in the vineyard, and twice in the winery) and destemmed. Maceration is very gentle, with natural fermentation occurring. The wine is then aged for two years before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Winemaker: Sylvain Dittiere
You get a strong sense of passing the baton; the baton in question being winemaking know-how, learnt from many years of working with winemakers throughout France and carrying out experiments. As we sit down to chat with him, we have two young woman winemakers on either side who are getting the opportunity to learn, just like he once did.
