This uncommon black grape is rarely farmed outside of the Fronton and Fiefs Vendéens appellations in France. Native whole cluster fermentation resulted in dark and brooding notes, yet the fruit aromas remain lush and juicy, due to the inclusion of whole berries. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in neutral French oak. Initial aromas of plum and violet are followed by spices and bramble on the palate. This wine is both earthy and rustic. The stem inclusion promotes a textured mouthfeel and extended finish.
