Therry Germain from a long line of Bordeaux winemakers, arrived here in 1991, attracted by the region’s perfect balance of grape varietal, climate and terroir, which he considers one of the finest in France. The vineyard is worked in a natural way with the goal of keeping the vine and the soil at its healthiest and Thierry has become a fully-fledged advocate of biodynamics.

A blend of different vineyard sites, this junior Cabernet Franc is no retiring violet. Intensely hued, thick with juicy dark berry, almost plummy fruit, a hint of chocolate, and the merest whisper of pepper.
