All of our wines are vinified and aged without sulphites.
A minimal dose of sulphur is added around April/May when bottling occurs.
AOP Saumur Champigny
Antidote is the result of a de-stemmed whole-cluster barrel vinification. Carrying out a small batch vinification allows us to obtain wines which are more aromatic with rounder, more complex tannins.
This is a cellar-worthy wine which will develop generously over the next 3 years.
Best enjoyed at between 15°c-17°c with characterful dishes and mature cheeses.
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Age of vines: 15-20 years
Soil type: Calcareous clay subsoil (tufa)
Production: 2,000 bottles/year
Vinification: Individual parcel vinification, very short fermentation in order to extract lots of fruit and supple tannins.
