The Producer

About Pierre Borel

Simplicity is key here - Pierre makes only one wine, and seeks to vinify in as straightforward a way as possible. The sandy gravel soils yield fragrant fruit which is fermented in a simple chai (basically a shed) that comprises one large tank of stainless steel and one of fibreglass. The wine is racked off the skins after a couple of weeks and is bottled from tank, with no barrel ageing. Pierre’s wine is honest, understated and everything we love about Cabernet Franc from this part of France.
