The biodynamically farmed 15 hectare estate is spread over the appellations of Montlouis-sur-Loire, Touraine and Touraine-Amboise, where old vines côt (malbec), cabernet franc, grolleau, chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc fully express their potential. In the winery, the work is very precise and measured, with micro cuvée vinifications and élevage in concrete vats and old casks. Indigenous yeasts are used for the fermentations, and the juices are transported by gravity, with gentle extractions and long macerations to follow. The use of sulphites is judicious and no other inputs, or interventionist techniques are used. The whites are neither racked nor stirred. Praised by wine critics and loved by wine enthusiasts, La Grange Tiphaine has positioned itself as an ”incontournable” (essential) estate to discover and to understand the wines of the Loire Valley.

Biodynamic. 120 year old un-grafted côt vines (local name for malbec). The south-east terroir is composed of red clay with silex on a limestone mother rock layer. Hand harvested. Indigenous yeasts. Long maceration in concrete vats. Aged 9 months for 50% in concrete egg shaped tanks and the remaining in 225l barrels.

Biodynamic. This Malbec (locally called Cot in Loire) displays an intense nose of black fruit, herbal undertones, graphite notes and hint of smokiness. This shows elegance and explosive aromatics with a core of sweet cassis, a sappy old-vine intensity and chewy rich texture, with a perfect balance between the acidity and the soft tannins. This wine should be open a least a couple of hours or decanted prior enjoying it.
