Sulphites-free wine

Loire Valley

Esprit du lieu - 2018 - Jonathan Maunoury

Domaine Jonathan Maunoury

Probably what Puy-Notre-Dame does best: when we give the Cabernet Franc time to soften and reveal its full potential, we discover these notes of blackberry, undergrowth, flowers... Complex palate, perfectly integrated tannins, long finish. 10 out of 10.

100% Cabernet Franc from vines planted in 1999 and grown biodynamically. They are planted at an altitude of 73 meters, on the south-west slope of the hill of Puy-Notre-Dame, on shallow and stony soils, predominantly clay-limestone over bed rock. Manual harvest. Vinification: 11 days of maceration in stainless steel vats, end of fermentation and prolonged aging in 225-litre barrels that have seen three wines, for two and a half years. Bottled at the Estate without fining, filtration or added sulphites.
