Good things come to those who wait.

This 100% Cabernet Franc, sourced from organically farmed vines, is about as serious and soulful as a wine gets. The vines were harvested and aged in neutral barrique for 18 months, with a touch of sulfur at bottling. Sure, you could drink it now – but we recommend hanging on to this one and watching it evolve and grow.
  • Sylvain Dittiere grew up in Saumur, where his family earned their living growing roses.
  • He studied oenology and interned with Gerard Gauby, Marc Tempe, Thierry Germain and Antoine Foucault.
  • The Cabernet Franc vines are planted on sand, silt and clay with a subsoil of limestone.
  • Sylvain also goes by the nickname “TonTon”

Vibes with:

  • Storing this puppy in a cool, dark and odorless place.
  • Velvet armchairs.
  • Rack of lamb.
