Personality: Berry good! The carbonic maceration brings soft, crunchy tannins and a glou-glou vibe with lots of expressive red and black fruit. The perfect summer red to be enjoyed thoroughly chilled.

Vineyard: Clay-limestone bordering the limestone plateau of Cordes, in Andillac. Southern exposure. Vines planted in 1994, certified organic.

Making of: The grapes are hand-harvested at optimum ripeness and sorted. Spontaneously fermented as whole bunches in stainless steel for 8 days (carbonic maceration), then pressed and aged for one year in fiberglass tanks. No fining, no filtration, no SO2 added.

Winemaker's Note: Linguistic fun fact: The name of this wine refers to Sebastien, Marine’s vineyard helper and creator of this wine – his rugby nickname is Le iench, the verlan version of chien, the French word for dog (verlan is a type of French slang where the syllables are reversed).
