More About This Wine

Light ruby red colour. Crunchy red berries and summer cherries on the nose. Lipsmaking juiciness on the mouth, with bright acidity and a solid mineral backbone that leads to a long, moreish finish. This Loire Pinot is as good with the Christmas turkey as it is, slightly chilled, with a summer picnic.

Hows it's made

The Pinot Noir grapes come from a 6ha plot in Buzançais. The vines range in age from 25-50 years. Planted across varying elevations spanning 150-300 m.a.s.l., they primarily enjoy south-eastern exposures. Extremely complex soils varying from vineyard to vineyard, some with a high concentration of limestone and deep layers of calcareous clay or Kimmeridgian marl, and some flinty with stones and layers of compacted chalk.
