This small ten-hectare domaine was a discovery we could not resist. The Pichet family have long cultivated nothing but Cabernet Franc (though they recently bought a small parcel of white grapes in Chinon, which is something of a rarity). Since son Thomas Pichet came on board in 1995, the domaine has been converted to organic viticulture and now makes five different wines from its collection of parcels which are divided between the “sables” and the “tuffeaux”. We have examples of each in the stellar 2017 vintage.
