Pioneering a bright-eyed wine crusade within the extreme terroir of Quebéc, Frédéric Simon and his wife Catherine Bélanger tend to their 1.50 hectare winery with resolute sincerity and an evolving sense of place.
Discovery drives the work that they do here, with relatively new plantings of vitis vinifera such as Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Dornfelder, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Savagnin (uncommon to the area due to arduous growing conditions). All vines are tended to organically, with minimal alterations in the cellar, leading Frédéric to a series of challenges to consider when combating the extreme cold of winter and inevitable frosts of spring.
Harvested from mid-September to mid-October. Whole bunch fermentation for the Petite Perle, destemming and treading for the Marquette and Frontenac noir. Natural fermentation for all three, with blending on November 2nd and end of fermentation in the bottle. The wine is unracked, unfiltered, unfined and without added sulphur. Dangerously drinkable and slightly sparkling: serve chilled and drink as soon as possible!
