Soft, silky tannins with a herby red cherry finish and black fruits. If a black forest gateau made a comeback as a dry red wine.

Cedric Garreau farms 3 hectares of vines around Beaulieu-sur-Layon in Anjou and is not keen on expanding any further as he prefers to do everything himself (aside from the help with picking at the harvest). He is quiet and measured in his approach and this is reflected in his wines, structured, elegant, they speak for themselves. He farms organically, using biodynamic methods, the only sulfites used are to clean the barrels.
