Au Dessus de Vitré - 2020 - Valentin Desloges

Les Quatre Piliers

THE wine that will fascinate lovers of the grape variety, and that will change the mind of Cabernet's detractors! Complex with notes of cherry, red fruits and spices. Elegant, airy and suave palate, superb aromatic length. A great wine crafted for gastronomy, to be decanted before tasting.

100% Cabernet Franc from 70-year-old vines, in conversion to organic farming, planted on two hectares in total, facing South-West in Saint-Aignan-sur-Cher, clay-limestone soils. Manual harvest at good maturity. Vinification: total destemming, 22 days of vatting with a single pumping over and very small punching down, soft pressing. 18 months of aging in 228-liter barrels, without new oak, these are ex-Bordeaux barrels of Château Cheval Blanc and Château Mangot. Bottled without filtration, sensible use of sulfites.
