Claire & Florent Bejon

Chinon, Loire



From a single hectare of Cabernet Franc split over two parcels in the village of Lerné, on the left bank of the Vienne between Chinon and Saumur. The vineyards face directly south and the soils are a complex mix of clay, limestone and most notably, a large proportion of silex. The grapes spent three months as whole bunches in cuve, before being pressed off to old casks for a year of élevage. Textured and finessed, here the berries and spice are framed by an intense, stony minerality. Autumn in a glass.
