The AOP of Côteaux du Vendômois was officially formed in 2001, but the history of wine production goes back as far as the 11th century. There is a large cooperative producing 60% of total AOP production and only 13 private producers in the appellation.
Patrice Colin has been organic since 1988! Patrice encourages biodiversity and is proud to count over 150 different plant species in his vineyard. He works with very old vines and uses massal selection. His vines grow smaller bunches and berries than the same varieties found elsewhere. Patrice tills the soil for oxygenation and practices green harvest. He considers his winemaking to be consistent with the philosophy of the "Vin Naturel". He uses indigenous yeasts and his wines go through long fermentations.
Tasting Notes: Ruby red. Opens with notes of ripe red fruits, dried rose, and a strong, peppery touch. The sip is soft, and balanced, with a tannin present but well integrated.
