Grape: 100% Cabernet Franc
Soil: Grapes from vines 45 years old. The surface is sandy clay to a depth of 20cm. Below a 40 cm layer of sandy loam, lies sandy clay loam to a depth of one metre.
Vinification: The grapes are de-stemmed before being put into vats. After a period of cold maceration, fermentation starts naturally. This fermentation takes place in foudre barrels and after decanting the wine returns to the same barrel.
So, from the grape to the end of ageing, Champ aux Loups spends a period of a year in this wooden foudre barrel. After a light filtration, the wine is bottled.
Analysis: 13.5% alcohol
The vineyard is managed with respect for the environment, with no synthetic plant protection products, and no chemical fertilisers.
