Orion Alpha, a Cabernet Franc from two small but largely different plots of Faye d'Anjou. Equal parts make up the blend: the first is a fairly young plot of 10 years old on quartz clays (on deep shale) which will give the side of expression of the cabernet, its power and the backbone of the whole. The second plot comprises of very old vines of at least 70 years old, located in the Clos des Mailles. A little lower in the slope compared to the chenins on the same hillside and benefiting from a layer of clay above the schists which gives the aerial part of the wine, floral and fresh, very fine. The result is a wine which is strong yet retains its finesse. 

Orion, one of the easily noticeable large constellations is made up of 3 major stars: Betelgeuse (Alpha Orionis) the red giant which gives its name to the cuvée, Rigel (Beta Orionis) and Bellatrix (Gamma Orionis).
