Claire & Florent Bejon

Chinon, Loire

Les Bournais


From a remote, one hectare parcel of Cabernet Franc planted over heavy clay and limestone in Ligré, where the vines are fifty years old. This spent six months infusing as whole bunches before being pressed to old barrels and amphorae for a year of élevage. Light, bright and lifted, this possesses the kind of texture and perfume that reminds us all of some of our favourite Beaujolais, though its red berries, earth and woodsy notes could only be from this part of the world. As always with wines from this parcel, there is a fullness and sweetness to the tannins that is incredibly appealing.
