Deboutbertin Cabernet Franc La Noue Blanchard 2018
Clean grapes and a slow 24 hour long pressing in a primitive but effective old basket press yield clean and pure juice that does not require any settling. Instead it goes straight into the barrel and ferments at its own accord, often for many months. "We listen to the barrel and when it goes quiet fermentation stopped and we put the wine into bottles, without sulfur.
Stephanie Debou and Vincent Bertin share the work in the vineyard and cellar, but Stephanie doesn't hesitate to call this Cabernet Franc Vincent's baby. Plowed by horse, with no machinery, at all. Natural winemaking with no sulfur added. Organic.
