Claire & Florent Bejon

Chinon, Loire

Picrochole

2019

From a single hectare of Cabernet Franc in the village of Lerné, on the left bank of the Vienne between Chinon and Saumur. The vineyard faces directly South and the soils are a complex mix of firm clay, limestone and silex. The grapes ferment as whole bunches for several weeks in cuve, before being pressed off to old casks for a year of élevage. This is a wine of remarkable balance and poise, with black fruits and spice framed by an intense, stony minerality.
