Clos Rougeard is one of the most legendary producers of Cabernet Franc in the Loire Valley and their wines are incredibly highly sought after. Antoine Foucault is the ninth generation to run the estate and the incomparable quality of the wines is largely due to their uncompromising viticultural standards and minimal intervention winemaking.

Les Poyeux is made from a 2.9-hectare plot of 40 to 70+ year-old vines, fermented and matured in seasoned oak barrels. The 2012 is a wonderfully tensile release, with rich and concentrated dark fruits, subtle savoury nuances and rumbles of graphite minerality beneath. As ever it is wonderfully balanced on the palate, with svelte tannins, seamless texture and an incredibly long finish.
