The Estate

Franck is the nephew of Noel Verset, and bought his 97-year-old parcel in Chaillot from him when Noel retired. He blends this old plot with his 46-year-old parcel, both of which are on the granitic and sunny slopes of Les Chaillots.

Wine Making

The grapes for this wine are sourced from three hectares next to Vinsobres dans la Drome, which will now be Franck’s and is farmed organically. The winemaking occurs in stainless steel, fermentation with wild yeasts, no filtration and little SO2.
