Story

The wine
The wines from this estate are strongly influenced by traditional production methods, and are ambassadors for their appellations.
Situation
The plots of the cuvée Saint Martin are situated in the north shore of the Loire, where there is an ideal microclimate and the vines are sheltered from the sun exposure.
Terroir
The terroir features sandy topsoil with gravels that expresses the aromatic potential and smooth tannins of this Cabernet franc wine.
Vinification
Selection of parcels depending on the tasting of berries. Grapes are picked when they achieve optimum ripeness and a fruity aromatic profile. Vinification in thermo-regulated vats (24°C) and short maceration to conserve the smoothness of tannins and fruitiness of the grapes.
Maturing
Aged for 5 month before bottling in spring season.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%

Advice

Serving
Enjoy chilled (14-16°C).
Tasting notes
Deep ruby colour. The nose has aromas of ripe fruits (plum, blackcurrant, blackberry) and violet, accentuated by hints of spices (black pepper). Full-bodied on the palate with soft tannin, the wine is well balanced between freshness and roundness. Persistent finish of cooked fruits.
Food pairing
This red wine goes perfectly with fine delicatessen meats, salads, roasted white meats (grilled chicken with estragon), and soft cheeses.
