Made from Cabernet Franc planted on south-west-facing slopes on a limestone karst plateau at 400 metres altitude. Late harvested grapes from three-nine years old vines fermented with wild yeasts in stainless steel tanks without crushing. After eight months in three-year-old wooden barrels, the wine was filtered with a coarse filter (75µ) and bottled. No added sugar, acid, or fining. Named 'Automne' ('Autumn' in French), as it is reminiscent of the harvest season. A well-structured wine suitable for long-term ageing.
