Winemaker's Note

Domaine des Champs Fleuris has been a family Domain for generations. Today, it is under the supervision of the 3rd generation “vigneron,” Denis Rétiveau. The estate is dedicated to its terroir, respecting Biodiversity by implementing “la culture raisonnée”- otherwise known as using little to no interference both in the vineyard and cellar.


The vineyards are planted on calcareous plateaus that dominate the Loire Valley. The vines are centered in the Troglodytes, at the heart of the Turquant Village. “Les Tufolies” is planted on a deep tuffeau limestone soil, particularly well suited for growing the Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vines is 20 years. Harvest is mechanical at maturity.


The fruit is destemmed and had sorted. The fruit goes through short maceration (12 to 18 days) at 86F, with micro-oxygenation occurring simultaneously. The wine is matured in stainless steel vats for 6 months.


The wine shows a lovely ruby robe with aromas of fresh red fruit. The mouth is ample, filled with supple tannins and a mouthwatering fruity finish.


Best paired with fresh fish bathed in a red sauce, or a classic sliced skirt steak.

Smooth and a bit thick

May be too thick to enjoy during summer, unless chilled. I liked it though

Okay

Seems like good quality but for me it wasn't anything remarkable.
