Domaine Sebastien DavidLoire, France
Sébastien David makes deliciously crunchy Cabernet Franc from his vineyards situated on the limestone-clay and gravels of the Loire.
He has a total of around 15 hectares, all family owned, spread across Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil so as to avoid the risk of localised frost. Eschewing chemicals and working without sulphur in the winery he makes a gratifying aromatic red. His family have always worked organically, and Sebastien also employs some biodynamic preparations. He also experiments with various amphorae and clay eggs, as well as traditional foudres.
