About the producer:
Xavier Cailleau has entirely converted this ancient 700 year old estate in Anjou to Biodynamic farming, where many of the vines are quite old, the soil is rich in fossils and has a rare diversity with the landscape stretching over 6 villages and 8 different terroirs ; Grès, Tuffeau, Marne, Spilites, Rhyolites, etc. Xavier is very well-respected for all of his cuvées, but especially known for his “80” Grolleau; vines planted in 1930 (the 2010 now available is from 80 year old vines). In fact, for average age of vines, Bois-Brincon is either the oldest, or one of the oldest aged vine properties in the Anjou.
