Notes from Living Wines:

"The Rouge des Cornus is a 100% Cabernet Franc wine that is made from grapes that are hand-harvested from the younger parcel of Garreliere vines (approximately 2.3 hectares) that are around 20 years old. These vines thrive on Aeolian sand sitting on clay which is derived from flint.

François and Pascaline Plouzeau of Domaine de la Garreliere maintain an immaculate vineyard near the fascinating village of Richelieu which lies south of Tours quite close to the Chinon region.

At Domaine de la Garreliere they implement strict biodynamic vineyard practices which are certified by Ecocert and Biodyvin. A feature of their lovely wines is the wonderful set of labels produced by local artists that reflect the naming of the wine."
