Antoine Foucault has some Clos Rougeard blood in his veins. He and his partner, Caroline founded Domain du Collier in 1999 and have been making beautiful, powerful Chenin Blancs and Cab Francs ever since. The farm just shy of 7 hectares of vines in the famed Brézé commune in Saumur. 

The 'La Ripaille' hails from 30-60 yr old Cab Franc vines and is typically one of the brighter, more acidic examples of the wines. Earthy, herbal, musty, full of acidity and bright red fruit. Dried cherries on the palate with moderate structure.
