Cabernet Franc

Chenin Blanc
Sélection Parcellaire combines a vintage, a terroir, a variety and a vineyard with ideas and trials in the winery in order to create the character and personality of the wine. Our laboratory of taste!
For this 2016 vintage, the quality of our Cabernet Franc was outstanding. During the fermentation process one small batch in oak tank was so pure that we extended the maceration, more like an infusion, to see how the wine would develop with prolonged contact with the grape skins… This experience resulted in an infusion lasting 180 days (normally 20 to 30 days) with eventual pressing of the grapes on the 10th April 2017, during the Easter full moon! In order to express fully the ‘pure nature’ of this incredible vineyard, situated just in front of the winery, we have not added sulphur.
