Vincent Roussely is the 4th generation in charge of this castle estate in Angé sur Cher, Touraine, which his grandfather turned into a winemaking facility in 1917. The vineyards span 8 hectares on clay & tuffeau limestone with large deposits of flint.
Irréductible is made from a single hectare of 80+ year old vines from the local Pineu d’Aunis grape. Hand harvested and direct pressed before fermentation in 400L oak barrels, it is then aged in amphorae for 12 months and bottled unfined & unfiltered.
Concentrated, yet elegant, with notes of fresh raspberries, cherries, pepper, & purple flowers, with soft tannins, a well-integrated acidity, and a woodsy air leading to a bright finish.
100% Pineau d’Aunis. Biodynamic.
