Overview of the Wine
This family domaine situated on the banks of the Loire between the Châteaux de Chambord and Cheverny is ideally placed on the limestone banks above the river. The Clos surrounded by high walls is the privileged site facing the sunset.Located in Vineuil in the Loire Valley, close to Blois and right above the Loire River is where, in 1960, the domaine was established.
It is here in Cheverny that Pascal grows his Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Gamay on silicieous clay, and the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Romorantin on the sandy, pebbly soils. Averaging around 20 years of age, some plots date back 50 years while others are recent additions; his wines show a liveliness and vivacity and reflect the sustainable efforts they undergo to keep the land in harmony. Terra Vitis Certified.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Soft, medium-bodied, with notes of red-fruit and spice that make it so easy to drink. This is a wine for drinking in its youth and would benefit from being slightly chilled. It is a light bright red colour and on the palate it displays a charming delicacy and freshness with flavours of red cherry fruit with spicy touches.
