Stéphane Erissé makes some of the most classic Anjou style wines, and his Chenin and Cabernet Franc are highly regarded. With a laser-sharp acidity and a mineral backbone, this wine is sure to pair incredibly with grilled fish and veggies.
The parcel this wine comes from,“Les Mines,” received its name from its soil, so dark it looks like a coal mine. This really shines through in the wine, which has a striking minerality and earthiness from the low-intervention methods. Enjoy with some charred red pepper and a nice steak.
Like any good carpenter, Stéphane Erissé is meticulous, creative, and ultimately, decisive. After deciding to pursue winemaking, he studied for just three years under Antoine Foucault. Now, he brings his full talents to bear on crafting wines with integrity and discipline that shine through in the glass.
