Tasting wine from a Franc de Pied vineyard is always a rare opportunity, because Franc de Pied vines are vulnerable to the deadly phylloxera. Fine grained and silky, with lovely notes of white pepper and pomegranates. -Kermit Lynch

Organic and biodynamic viticulture, low yields, hand harvested, indigenous yeasts, low to no sulfur, fermentations in cuve. This is a bottling done from the Breton’s one parcel of un-grafted Cabernet Franc vines, near the parcel of Galichets. They remain in good health. The vinification and the style is the same as for Galichets. - The wine is bottled after a year in stainless steel, unfiltered, in the early Fall before harvest. Style emphasizes lively fruit and is made to drink young. 12 years vine age.
