From a tiny planting of Cabernet Sauvignon, this is one of the most unique expressions of that grape we’ve encountered. Its fearsome dark fruits and spice have been tamed by plenty of time in the bottle and this is now an ethereally light, concentrated wine.

Stéphane Bernaudeau

It’s taken as gospel that Mark Angeli and Richard Leroy are the leading lights of natural winemaking in Anjou. But over the past few years, the wines of Stéphane Bernaudeau have hovered in to view to herald a new name to add to the list of greats in that tiny corner of the Loire Valley. Stéphane, like every other winemaker there, has suffered from the countless years of frost and disease pressure which have only served to make his richly textured, undeniably delicious wines even rarer, making opening a bottle now even more of a special event.
