The site is located on the hillside, just above the Chateau du Hureau and its cave, which is characterised by the "tuffeau" soil which is a sedimentary limestone from the cretacian era, with which all the Loire castles and houses were built.

This particular soil is renowned to be an ideal base for vineyards, as it heats up easily after the winter and regulates beautifully the water supply during summer. The drainage of tuffeau is exceptional. During the summer droughts, the vine roots can still find enough humidity for essential growth.

Vines were planted in both 1953 and 1991 following by organic viticultural method (Ecocert) such as tillage, manual stripping, often two thinning in July and early September without any chemical sprays or fertilizers.

All the fruits are hand-picked, followed by manual sorting for quality crops. Then, grapes are fully destemmed and fermented about 25 to 35 days. Once the fermentation has occurred, the resulting wine then undergoes malolactic fermentation in tank and aged for 18-24 months before bottling.

One the nose, a combination of preserved red fruits like preserved red currant, raspberry, cranberry with oriental spices, liquorice and tobacco scents, underlying a hint of savoury, woody aromas.

One the palate, it showcases preserved, dried red currant, raspberry, cranberry, accompanying spices, tobacco and savoury flavours. It is a well-balanced, medium-bodied, mouth-watering yet structured wine with crispy acidity, powdery tannins and great concentrations. It benefits from slight decanting for 15 -20 minutes before serving, or it can be held in your wine fridge for 3-5 years.
