Orion Alpha 2018
A Wine That
is as artisan as it gets. Destemmed by hand and left to macerate gently in a giant tub, the wine produced from these grapes emanates all the love that was poured into it. Silky soft and like the best red fruit breakfast bowl you've ever had.

Where and How?
This is organically farmed Cabernet Franc from vineyards that Pierre has taken over from his parents in Faye d'Anjou.
The grapes are destemmed by hand, before macerating very gently. Fermentation occurs naturally, and the wine is aged in oak barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Winemaker: Pierre Ménard
Pierre Ménard is one of those rare, quiet visionaries. A thinker, you can tell he philosophises over much more than simply what's in the glass. Having converted some of his parents' vines to organics, he is now going from strength to strength in his self-built winery, crafting some of the most compelling Chenins and Cabernets to come out of the Loire in recent years.
