Simple varietal expression Pinot from organic growers in the Muscadet region - a cooler climate might be expected, but the fruit here is harvested a little later and as such carries a weight to it that you might not expect from France's maritime Northwest. A smooth texture, but with a little crunch. Bright, sharp forest berries from the volcanic soils and a mellow, savoury undertone. Hitting a real sweet-spot in the price department.

Seventh-generation winemaker brothers, Stéphane and Vincent started working in their family vineyards in 1988, then conversion to organic in 2009, producing their first certified vintage in 2013. Their soil is volcanic and consists of two terroirs; the first has a top soil of sand, gravel and clay with a subsoil soil of gabbro. The second; a topsoil quartz with a subsoil of granite. The climate is Oceanic, with a soft and humid winter and the wind coming from the west off of the Atlantic.
