“I have none, & it’s a shame that this bottle needs it.
An impatient winemaker”

100% Cabernet Franc and declassified as Vin de France, this is part of the limited and bottle numbered ” Les Dissidents” range. Following a number of experiments, a whole instinctive range comprised of micro-cuvees and varietal wines, prohibited by the appellation, in truly exclusive, libertarian style with a choice of what the winemaker believe to be the best varieties of the soil, this unclassified range of French wine defies the institutions, their regulations and conventional wine. Yield of just 30 hectoliters per hectare with non sulfite fermentation with indigenous yeasts and bio-protection (by using non saccharomyces yeasts to avoid brettanomyces.) Post fermentation maceration for 10 days at 38 degrees Celsius, malolactic fermentation and aging in 2000 litre barrel. Focused and elegant wine which is precise with a hint of mint, vegetal but ripe, blackcurrant, bourbon, concentrated, juicy and fresh, with a nice balance with high aging potential. This wine needs minimum 3 years after the year of harvest to be ready………Patience
