  • Winemaker Notes 50 years ago, Arnaud’s grandfather, René Couly, was famous for sparkling wine elaboration. Arnaud has decided to continue this process by creating a unique style of sparkling wine on the Chinon Terroir. After 3 years of researches on grapes and soils, Arnaud achieved to elaborate two original sparkling cuvées: Brut de Franc Rosé and Brut de Franc White made from 100% Cabernet Franc. These cuvées will delight lovers of delicate bubbles and guarantee reception & ceremony success.
  • Tasting Notes Nice, dark, intense and shiny ruby/purple robe. Intensely flavored and complex bouquet with ripe grape and spicy notes. Unctuous, voluptuous and generous mouth. Concentrated and elegant tannins. Recommended with roasted wild duck, chicken, grilled beef and game.

    Serve between 15 and 18 °
    Ageing: superb from 3 to 5 years; extraordinary to 10 years.
  • Vineyard A superb clay-limestone terroir, located in the East Chinon to Cravant-les-Coteaux with southern exposure. A perfect soil for growing grapes. Culture 'reasoned culture', with environmentally grassing between rows to encourage the limitation of yields and erosion. Leaf removal and trellising to optimize the maturity and quality of grapes.
  • Vinification After stalking and full sorting of the grapes, fermentation musts starts spontaneously thanks to the natural yeast. Fermentation takes about 30 days under constant control of vinification temperatures. This method promotes the expression fruity Cabernet Franc. The bottling takes place the following fall.
