Claire & Florent Bejon Pain Perdu
From a small parcel of Cabernet Franc in the village of Beaumont en Véron on the right bank of the Vienne. The vines here are forty years old and planted on a slope where the limestone bedrock is covered with sand. The grapes were fermented as whole bunches in cuve for a couple of weeks before being pressed to a combination of vats, old barrels and amphorae for a short élevage. This is the most open and fruit forward of these releases, with plush red fruits, a gentle spice and a pleasant herbaceous character to the finish.
