Country: France

Region: Anjou

Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc

Vintage: 2019

Originally from Brittany, Adrien de Mello travelled the world following a love of wine before settling in Anjou in 2015. He now farms four hectares of vineyards planted over schist in and around the village of Saint Aubin de Luigné. The vines have been farmed organically for some time, but since settling here Adrien has taken things to the next level and in just a few years has gained both organic and biodynamic certification. He plows by horse and is passionate about foraging wild plants such as nettle, comfrey, yarrow and buckthorn to prepare teas to be used in the vineyards.

Erogene is a unique wine made predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon but with around 10% Sauvignon Blanc. A wonderfully perfumed aroma with exotically spiced fruit complimented by a floral, citrus blossom lift from the Sauvignon.
