Fortunate to have old Cabernet vines planted by Francis, Vincent’s father and Emmanuel’s grandfather. We are therefore here on old Cabernet Franc vines, some of which were planted in the fifties. A red wine full of vigor and freshness expressing the flowery and graphite character of Cabernet Franc on a terroir of schist.
