    Setting up in 2011 after stints with Cyril le Moing, Mark Angeli, Les Roches Sèches and Olivier Cousin, Stephanie and Vincent have just 3.5h of old vines near Faye d’Anjou, which they immediately started working organically (with ploughing aid from their Percheron horse Anatole).  They are particularly keen to defend the pineau d’aunis, and this comes from a 0.65h parcel of 55yo vines planted on a plateau with schist and quartz as a base. Selected from a series of tries in the vines, whole bunches were gravity fed into cuve and after being gently crushed, a 12 day cuvaison ensued before 12 months in older barrels. Bottled without filtration and with no added sulphur, this is a peppery spicy, zesty natural wine with a good terroir print on the finish. VLQ. For drinking now to 2018.
