Made from 100% Cabernet Franc, the grapes are grown on a gravel and sand plot of 20 years age, the grapes are hand harvested and 100% direct pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats, 2nd fermentation with native yeasts by integrating a must in fermentation before drawing, aged for 12 months on slats, disgorging without dosage.

Founded in 1987 near the town of Chinon, at the locality of Les Chesnaies, Beatrice and Pascal have been carefully cultivating Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc on approximately 13 hectares, in soils that range between sand and gravel deposits, limestone-clay soils and flint based clay soils. For over 20 years, between Chinon and Cravant-les Coteaux, the estate has been practicing organic viticulture and biodynamic preparations since 2005, becoming certified in 2012. With their trusty draft-horse Isis, they plow the rows between the vines, planting each year different cover crops to assist in the uptake of the biodynamic preparations while adding back nutrients for the following season.

They closely follow the lunar cycle from vineyard to cellar, only using indigenous yeasts with fermentation occurring in concrete or wooden vats, while maturing and aging are adapted according to the different terroirs and can be either concrete and wood, followed by racking and bottling according to the lunar cycles as well. Their overall purpose is to accentuate the purity of the terroir from which their vines come, while allowing them to elaborate on their personalities in the cellar.
