Big is beautiful.
The La Porte Saint Jean consists of 100% Cabernet Franc sourced from two different lieu dits within the commune of Brossay in Saumur. The vines are up to 40 years old and vinified in concrete tanks to preserve freshness of the fruit. An intense - yet elegant - offering from rising star and wine wünderkind, Sylvain Dittière.
- Sylvain Dittière comes from a family of growers - rose growers; he decided grapevines were more interesting and began an apprenticeship at the iconic Domaine du Collier.
- Some of Sylvain’s mentors include Marc Tempé in Alsace, Gérard Gauby, and Thierry Germain.
- The major red grapes within the Saumur Region are Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pineau d’Aunis.
