This area of the Anjou-Villages falls on a geological fault-line. Half of the vineyards are grown in slate soils, the other half is grown in Parisian white limestone (known as the Paris-Basin) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_Basin
Thus all of our wines here are a blend of several vineyards with extremely individual terroir.
The Anjou Rouge comes from 25-30 years old vines. The blend is 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is made using no additives, and is macerated for 10 days in ambient temperature with ambient yeasts.
The wine is non-filtered and is aged in stainless steel tanks.
HVE Level 3 has 4 components:
1- Extreme reduction in phyto-santitary treatment. Average winery uses 16 treatments per growing season. In HVE the absolute maximum is 6, and only if absolutely needed.
2- Preserve biodiversity in the vineyard. Including herbs between the rows, as well as respect for trees, and beehives.
3 – Limit the use of fertilizer. The goal is for the land to create what it needs on it’s own.
4- Water use is limited and conscientious when used.
