Beatrice et Pascal Lambert - Les Puys, Chinon, Loire, France (2018)
Concentrated red fruit with savoury undertones. Fresh and bright summer berries, chalky and grippy tannins with a zippy acidity with all spice and anise along with a fairly full texture and long, persistent finish. Awesome wine.

Les Puys is made from Cabernet Franc grown on a yellow limestone terroir. The grapes are harvested manually and sorted on the table in the cellar. After destemming, maceration lasts 30 to 40 days in wooden vats. The aging lasts 24 months in 50 hectoliter tuns.
Domaine Béatrice and Pascal Lambert is located in Cravant-les-Côteaux, in the Chinon appellation in the Loire Valley. They cultivate 18 hectares of vines certified in biodynamic agriculture, on 3 distinct types of soil: gravel, clay-limestone and clay with flint. Natural methods are put in place for the elaboration of the wines: the fermentations take place slowly, naturally without adding yeast, without sulfur or any input.
The main cellar work (racking, bottling) is carried out according to the phases of the moon and the aging is adapted to the typicality of the terroirs. Béatrice and Pascal Lambert make maximum use of mass-selected vine plants.
