Saumur-Champigny "Vielles Vignes"
100% Cabernet Franc. The vieilles vignes in this case are estate vines ranging from 50 to 100 years old and scattered across a range of parcels on clay-limestone soils. The farming is certified-organic and is in conversion to biodynamics (on track for certification in the 2021 vintage). The bunches are harvested by hand and fully destemmed for fermentation with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks and a 10-day maceration. The wine is aged in steel for a year.
