Philippe Delmee of Les Goelands was a maths teacher who was tired of the constraints of the classroom - making the move to winemaking in 2006. After studying for two years, he started working with Benoit Courault and Domaines des Griottes, and Benoit helped him find a one-hectare parcel in Faye d’Anjou. He now has around 6 hectares of Grolleau, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Pineau d'Aunis, all of which are grown organically. 

The plot for this new single vineyard cuvee is on the site of an old oppidum - a Roman camp from when they occupied Gaul. It's a mix of de-stemmed and whole bunch Cabernet France fermented with semi-carbonic maceration. A soft, ripe blackcurrant-packed cuvee with a label that expresses how they would likely have enjoyed wine at the oppidum.
