Purchased in 2016 by the dynamic Brunet family, an estate raising pristine cuvées of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Viticulture is certified organic, with minimal adds in the winery. As a set all wines show a lovely balance between fruit, texture and some awesome minerality, particularly contrasting through the three reds.
The area has a colourful history, with the chalk soils tunnelled extensively during the Second World War as hiding for the French resistance; it’s not uncommon for the ground to give way on occasion and sink a tractor. The estate also offers two reds under the relatively new appellation of Saumur Puy-Notre-Dame, which are renowned for more intense and long-lived expressions.
