Overview of the Wine
A single-vineyard wine of unusual authority and texture, but unmistakable origin, from schist-grown vines over 60 years old. A Muscadet for those who appreciate fruit as well as the authentic saline minerality of the genre.

The wines of this property have changed quite markedly since we first brought in the 1993 vintage – but whose in Bordeaux have not? The one constant has been Rémy’s immutable sense of style that does not permit him to submit to
vulgar temptation, even in a prodigal year such as 2005. This wine is sumptuous to a fault, but the use of wood is discreet, and the hallmark iron tones and sense of locale lurk under the surface for those who look. 

The Chon brothers practice organic viticulture in a patchwork of crus that show the subtle but clear distinctions of terroir that exist in this popular but little-understood area. They make impeccably clean, vividly expressive wines at reasonable prices.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
A wonderful Loire Valley Cabenet Franc from Gilbert Chon and his 3-hectare vineyard of `Le Tristan` in Saint-Julien-de-Concelles. Aromatic and charming with a wonderful balance between black fruits and violets, with added uplifting acidity and juicy, ripe tannins.

Impressive nose of blackcurrant and cassis with violet overtones. Really juicy and luscious on the palate with ripe, silky tannins that wrap around a core of pure dark black fruits with a dusting of spice on the finish. Very good indeed.
