A Loire based concept wine by accomplished and visionary winemaker Philippe Guérin. Abstraction no. 4 is a declassified Merlot wine from the Loire where Merlot is technically not allowed, or at least not awarded an appellation status. It's brave and the results a great. Very smooth, accomplished, fun, and lively Merlot.

Of these, 23 hectares are dedicated to the production of Muscadet, with the oldest vines approaching 90 years of age. The rest are a variety of different plots and experiments, like Abstraction 4 Merlot.
