100% Cabernet Franc. Previously a blend of two terroirs, Terres Chaudes now hails exclusively from the Poyeux terroir in Chaintres, near the heart of the appellation (an area made famous by the Clos Rougeard bottling). The vines for this cuvée average about 40 years of age, and come from the côteau, or slope, where there is very shallow topsoil before the vine roots hit the limestone bedrock.
All the fruit was de-stemmed and fermented in cement (with some foot stomping), followed by maturation in 60-hectolitre, neutral, tronconique wooden vats.
