    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.
