MEPHISTO 2016 - DOMAINE DE L'ÉCU

0,75 L Red Wine / France / Vin de France / 12 % vol

AB (organic wine) Biodyvin (organic wine label) Demeter (biodynamic label)
A Cabernet from the Nantes region worthy of the greatest Saumur wines!
This 100% Cabernet Franc from a 0.8 hectare plot that is South East facing on a granite sub-soil. Yields are limited to 30 hl/ha to preserve the best of the grapes. Ageing takes place in old barrels and amphorae for 15 months, with no added sulphur! The work in the vineyard and in the winery takes place with the most profound respect for nature and the environment with a manual harvest and indigenous yeasts etc. The Mephisto nose is full and flattering with freshness and delicacy on aromas of black fruit and small red berries, currants, blackberries, strawberries, and some peppery notes. On the palate, it starts off fine and smooth, the tannins are a little tight but velvety. We find a nice flattering and fruity body, balanced between depth and a chiselled tension with subtle spices. This Cabernet can hold its own against the great Saumur reds! Warning: few bottles are marketed each year, but Vinatis allows you to access them.

DOMAINE DE L'ÉCU

Guy Bossard, talented winemaker from Domaine de L'Ecu represents the face of Muscadet all by himself. A convinced biodynamicist, he applied his methods from the beginning of the 1970s. Mocked in the beginning and then admired a few years later, Guy Bossard is one of the rare winegrowers to have known how to elevate Muscadet to the rank of great wine. The convincing quality over the vintages led him to biodynamic reconversion in 1996. Building on his success and his experience, he decided to hand over to a wine enthusiast (Muscadet in particular). Boeotian winegrower, Frédéric Nigervan Herck, whom everyone calls Fred, learns alongside his mentor all the subtleties of these Loire lands. In no time at all, he has assimilated all the knowledge and intuition of his master, ensuring the sustainability of what can be considered the best of Muscadet wines. The wines today show a lot of panache and precision. The aromatic complexity and depth of the wines on the palate seem to have propelled Fred's wines to the top of the bill. This estate has clearly taken off, producing without a doubt some of the greatest wines in the world.
