Tasting notes: Sensual, aromatic notes of caramelized pear, golden apple, baked quince, and lemon. More nuances of baking spices, wet stones, and chamomile evolve with a little bit of air in the glass. The palate is generously textured, but distinctly racy and mineral.
About the winery: Richard Desouche, the current vineyard manager of Clos Rougeard, found his vocation as a winemaker by creating his "P'tit Domaine". Richard created the Domaine in 2006, with 0.4ha of Cabernet Franc and 0.6ha of Chenin in the little village of Dampierre Sur Loire. In 2010, Richard managed to increase the domain size with 1.4ha of Cabernet Franc in Varrains and Dampierre Sur Loire. Finally, in 2016 he got the opportunity of owning 1.9ha of Cabernet Franc in Champigny. His domain is currently 4.5ha of vines.
