“We find here the same righteousness and freshness that in the Rogelins, but with a more discreet tannic grain, a more open fruit. The palate is balanced. This winemaker has a real idea of what are the elegance and nuance in the cabernet franc.” - Four Stars - Revue des Vins de France 2003

The estate comprises 14 hectares of Cabernet Franc and one hectare of Chenin Blanc planted along gentle slopes and hillsides of Saumur, Dampierre, Chacé, Varrains and Champigny.
These are some of the greatest terroirs of Saumur, rooted to the beneficial clay and limestone soils of the Cretaceous period formed nearly 90 million years ago. Tempered by Atlantic breezes, warmer winters and cooler summers keep this microclimate from experiencing temperature extremes.
Their vines average roughly 45 years of age, with the oldest vineyards planted in 1927.
