Chateau de Targe has been run by a continuous family line going back to 1655, when Phelippeaux de Ponchartrain, the personal secretary to King Louis XIV of France, acquired a hunting lodge near the forests of the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, along with the hilltop next to it. Modern winemaking commenced in the 1970's under the helm of Edouard Pisani-Ferry, who brought new vineyards into the fold, began a course of sustainable viticulture, and installed modern temperature-controlled tanks. "Les Cerisers de Targe" is a new wine that debuted here at Streetcar last year and quickly disappeared. We're offering the first take on the new vintage to our Pass subscribers. It's 100% cabernet franc made in a light, airy style reminiscent of Beaujolais. A perfect picnic wine that demands a good chill, try it with saucisson sec and goat cheese.
