Notes from Rive Gauche:

"Winemaking wunderkind Sylvain Dittière founded La Porte Saint Jean in 2010, when he was just 24 years old. He built the domaine from the ground up, first purchasing organically farmed grapes from a trusted local grower until he could find the financial footing to purchase his first plot: 5 acres of prime Saumur terroir on limestone and Jurassic silex planted to 60-year-old Cabernet Franc vines. He has since added another 10 acres on soils that range from clay to yellow marl to alluvial sand."

Winemaking
After 6 weeks of maceration, the free-run (2/3) and press wine (1/3) is fed into used Bordeaux-type barrels, where it ages for 18 months before blending and bottling.
