From the lieu-dit of Brunetières, located on the south-facing slopes of the Loire in the village of Ingrandes de Touraine, with clay-limestone terroir. Alcoholic fermentation takes place in conical wooden vats, with regular punching down and pumping over. The maceration lasted 18 days, with the malolactic completing in oak barrels. Aged in one-quarter new barriques and three-quarters foudre for 14 months. Classic spicy blackcurrant aromas and a firm spine—an ageworthy Cabernet Franc.
