This wine is named “Mimi” after Jeremy’s cat. Mimi is made of 100% Cabernet Franc sourced from cult producer, Jerome Lenoir in Chinon and vinified by Jeremy Quastana. The 2021 vintage throughout Europe was a pretty brutal one due to frost, and Jeremy had to get creative when sourcing his fruit this year. Fortunately for him, he managed to get grapes from some of the top producers in the business. This Cabernet Franc is a stunner, and is vinified without carbonic maceration. Swoon-worthy herbs coupled with animalistic pheromone aromas make this one serious wine.
Jeremy worked with Olivier Lemasson for a few years and managed to grab a couple hectares of land not far from Olivier's main plot in the Loir et Cher, not far from Cheverny. Before that, Jeremy learned the trade at Marcel Lapierre's winery and did a six-month internship at Clos Ouvert in Chile. In four vintages, he has shown that he can make clean, highly drinkable wines with very little sulphur dioxide. Jeremy is still a young vigneron and he gets better every year. The vineyard is one plot composed of young vine Gamay, middle-aged Cot, and old vine Gamay on a gentle slope of clay over Silex.
