This indigenous grape variety – known as Romorantin – was planted in the 1850’s, and therefore pre-phylloxera. Provignage is the name given to the technique used originally to propagate the vines. The wine is living history.
Organic methods in conjunction with old ungrafted wines, no sulphur, no chaptalisation, purity from a grower ‘Henry Marrionet’ whose wines are a true reflection of his love and passion for natural things.
This golden wine brings to mind apples, pears and white flowers, but also dried fruits, minerals and honey. The combined length, richness and complexity is fabulous!
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Somewhat exclusive as there are only 386 acres of this grape variety in the world and it’s only planted in the Loire valley region. Like all wines coming from ungrafted vines, it has more depth and richness. Aromas of pear, quince, white flowers, honey and hazelnut. An indefinable experience!”
