ABOUT THE WINE
Having worked as a consultant for other wineries, Brittany-born Loïc couldn't wait to start his own, and so in 2011 he purchased 11 hectares spread between Savennières and La Franchaie, Certified organic and non-interventionist, Loïc prefers to let the effects of the seasons and terroir dominate the character of his wines. Grapes are exclusively picked by hand, with careful sorting to ensure quality fruit. Fermentation is slow, using natural yeasts and minimal sulphites, with maturation in oak barrels or small tanks.

TASTING NOTES
Produced only in exceptional years, from 'green-harvested' vines which are able to concentrate on feeding only 3 or 4 grapes clusters per vine. Harvested by hand, sometimes with small amounts of botrytis-affected grapes, the wine undergoes a slow, natural vinification of 18 months in oak barrels. Golden colour with amber shades, derived from a period of skin-contact prior to fermentation. The nose combines fruity, mineral and woody notes. On mouth it is ample, pure, rich and fresh. Incredibly long finish.

FOOD PAIRING
An exquisite wine to go with rich fish like turbot, brill or a poulet de Bresse or even fatty duck breast. We also recommend pairing with rich baked cheeses, like Comte and Beaufort.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A great sensory experience! A great wine to drink now but with an ageing potential of 30 years. We recommend decanting for 30 minutes before serving.
