DOMAINE DES MAILLOCHES - VIEILLES VIGNES 2016
VAL DE LOIRE - BOURGUEIL
Grapes : Cabernet Franc
History : Located in Restigné, in the heart of the Bourgueil appellation, Domaine des Mailloches is an old vineyard of more than 100 years (it was founded around 1860). Eight generations of winemakers have followed and today Samuel Demont and his family continue to farm 16 hectares of Cabernet Franc. Planted on sandy soil, gravel and clay - limestone, the vines are grown in a sustainable way.
The vineyard is farmed to respect the land and the environment (grassing between rows; tillage, rigorous pruning, selective dis-budding to control vine vigour and obtain optimum concentration of flavours and colour).
