From a 25 year old vineyard on schist sub soil and loamy-sandy
top soil. Organic farming, Biodynamic preparations, worked with a horse. The destemmed Cabernet Franc is macerated for 9 days. Fermentation occurs spontaneously with indigenous yeasts, without pumping over or punching down and without adding So2, aging in steel. 2500 bottles produced. Label art by Alex Dubois or its sister Sylvie Weber.
After 21 years as winemaker at the cult Clos Cristal in Saumur, Eric Dubois and his wife Alex went back on the road to look for a new wine adventure. During that time, Eric worked 2 years with legendary Nicolas Joly at Coulée de Serrant. Eventually, in late 2017, they found a beautiful organic 5,5ha vineyard in black Anjou, 7 miles west of Savennieres, where schist soils are king.
