Item Description
Vins Contés is a Loire Valley negociant directed by the dynamic Olivier Lemasson. His mission is to make wines from low average yields of less than 40 hl/ha (depending on the year, in 2003 for example: 28 Hl/Ha). Vins Contes buys grapes from either certified organic producers or growers that work under organic practices. All grapes are harvested by hand, which is no easy feat given that the vineyards are dispersed over a radius of 40kl. Due to this, soil types vary and this affords them the possibility of working with many types of raw material. The reds are vinified using carbonic maceration without sulfur additions or pigeage, and then are transferred to barrel. For the whites, the must is left to settle overnight after pressing, then the wine is put into barrel without added sulfur. Bottling is done without filtration with an extremely low dose of sulfur (2 g/hl) . This wonderful red comes from vines between 20 and 60 years-old grown in clay and flint soils. The name means "carrottopped kid.
