Soil and terroir
The vineyards of the appellation enjoy a remarkable location, dotted around on chalky plateaus and limestone hills overlooking the river Loire.
Grape variety and know-how
100% Cabernet Franc.
Grapes are harvested when perfectly ripe, to deliver fine, supple, round tannins. Aged on lees for 6 months to allow the wine to achieve roundness.
This Saumur-Champigny boasts a garnet red robe. Its fruity nose reveals aromas of violets and red fruit. On the palate the Cabernet Franc is soft and generous, with cherry notes and a beautiful finish. A congenial wine to serve with cheese from the Loire valley.
To be served between 14°C and 16°C.
