The Caslot family have been farming their domaine of thirty-three hectares since 1640 from their farmhouse which sits on the hill overlooking the vines in the heart of the superb terroir of Restigné. Today Pierre’s son Emmanuel and daughter Stéphanie are in charge. These dynamic siblings have been instrumental in upgrading the winery equipment and converting the domain to organic farming.
Purple-red colour, appealing nose of sloes, redcurrants and red pepper, firm in the mouth with cherry-bright acidity and earthy-peppery notes. Amazing value wine.
