A blend of Gamay, Cabernet Franc and Grolleau from Anjou Noir, Loire Valley. From 20-45 year old vines, on schist/quartz soils. Whole bunch infusion and natural fermentation in tank, aged for 10 to 12 months in wood conical vats.
Aromas and flavours of red fruits, herbs and spice. Very fine, well-integrated tannins. A delicate and supple wine.
Named after the Pacific Island in French Polynesia.
"Intriguing notes of autumn leaves and restrained with subtle oak. Soft tannins with herbal and gamey notes. An individual wine from the Loire that will develop well in bottle." 92 points (2018 vintage), Decanter
