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
Golden yellow in colour, very complex nose with honey, citrus, brioche and quince on the nose. Very bright and fresh with some nutty and toasted notes. On the palate is powerful and structured. Good minerality, medium weight and a long finish.

FOOD PAIRING
Ideal with any fish, preferably with a strong flavoured spice or sauce. Sweetbread or veal kidneys in a rich cream sauce will also complement the wine nicely, along with a locally produced goat or sheep's milk cheeses.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
The name 'Équilibre' symbolises a meeting point where the terroir-driven approach in Loïc's biodynamic vine-growing and the natural style of winemaking combine to create a wine which embodies the best of both philosophies.
