Alix Roque spent time making wine in Burgundy before heading home to her mothers vineyards in the heart of Faugeres. Wines from this region often show the warm and dry climate in their fruit, however Alix uses Burgundian techniques, picking early and at night making Le Presbytere a fresh, harmonious red. Bit of spice, bit of herbs with some juicy raspberries, the long finish is full of dark chocolate before notes of damson and prune.
Wine maker Guillaume Reynouard has 18 hectares, including a parcel of Pineau d’Aunis, a grape that was forgotten and vilified in the Saumur region, but which is being appreciated more and more over the last couple of years. The distinguishing characteristic of pineau d’aunis is black pepper. This is accompanied by menthol notes of Sichuan pepper and discrete tannins. Drinks well with oily fish, chicken and Asian vegetable dishes.
