Vincent Roussely is 4th generation winemaker at Clos du Roussely. He's worked tirelessly to revamp the vineyard and winery to strict organic standards. The plough the clay and limestone soils by horses and work organic dung and leaf mould in. The vineyards border the appelations of Touraine and Touraine Chenonceaux and are planted with Sauvignon, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Cot and Pineau D'Aunis.

Bottled without fining or filtration and using minimal sulhpur.
