    Product description

    Brothers Bertrand and Vincent Marchesseau have rigorous approach the vineyard and minimal intervention in the winemaking process. Their wines are a true reflection of the terroir and are all certified organic.

    Funambule, meaning tightrope walker, is sourced from the atypical soil (for the area) of clay and limestone located between slopes and the Loire river. 10% of the wine was aged in old oak barrels for three months. Aromas of red fruits with toasted and spicy notes. Round on the palate and well balanced with the delicate fruits and tannins. Good length.

  • About the producer

    About the producer: Domaine Bertrand and Vincent Marchesseau

    Brothers Bertrand and Vincent Marchesseau, third generation of winemakers, took over the family property in 2001. Today they own vineyards in Bourgueil (14 ha), Chinon (5 ha) and St Nicolas de Bourgueil (3 ha), all certified organic since 2011. Bertrand is dedicated to the vineyards and winemaking while Vincent is in charge of the maturation and trade. A rigorous approach in the vineyard (analysis of the soil, grassing, thinning, leaf stripping…) and minimal yet precise intervention in the winemaking process (maceration only at the start of the fermentation and micro bullage at the end) means their wines are a true reflection of the terroir.
