    Setting up in 2011 after stints with Cyril le Moing, Mark Angeli, les Roches Sèches and Olivier Cousin, Stéphanie and Vincent have just over 3.5h of old vines near Faye d’Anjou, which they immediately started working organically (with ploughing aid from their powerful Percheron horse Anatole and no tractors used at all in the vines).  This comes from a 0.75h parcel of 60yo 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 by foot, a 15 day cuvaison ensued before 12 months in older barrels. Bottled without fining or filtration and with no added sulphur, this is a brambly, cherry fruited natural wine, super digeste with a good terroir print on the finish. VLQ. For drinking now to 2019.

    Stéphanie and Vincent produced this wine from 0.77h of 30yo vines from a superb soil where rhyolites are dominant (a dense heavy rock comprising iron, magnesium, felspar and quartz). Yields are a low 25hh and after a very slow pressing in a wooden vertical press the juice is then transferred to older barrels for a slow-paced fermentation and 18 months elevage, when it is bottled with no fining, no filtration and no sulphur. Again, a perfectly judged natural wine with dense confit citrus fruits and pear on the palate with a hint of spice, great balance with a mineral vibration. VLQ. For drinking now to 2020.
