Val de Loire Vendee IGP "Bel Canto", Prieure La Chaume 2009

Extraordinary Merlot from the southernmost corner of the Loire. The La Chaume vineyard with its southfacing slopes and calcareous limestone soils is a superb terroir that is rare to find in this part of the Loire. Estelle and Christian Chabirand farm the vineyard organically and craft the wine as naturally as possible, vinifying with natural yeasts and without any corrections or additions, except for the most minimum dose of sulphites. The free sulphites in this wine is less than 10 mg/L, which is next to nothing. All this care is applied to maintain the taste and energy of the wine. Well balanced, offering juicy red fruits and tannins. Absolutely crafted with care.
