Product Description

70% Chenin, 30% Cabernet Franc Climate: The micro-climate of the Saumur region is the hottest and driest in the entire Loire Valley. Vinification: There are one or two selections by hand, harvesting in small crates when the grapes are just ripe in order to keep the freshness and fruit. Slow and soft pneumatic pressing so as to extract the juice without the bitterness of the pits, and fermentation and malo in tanks before putting in old oak barrels. Maturation: After blending, the wine is matured in oak casks 3 to 5 years old to gain its velvety without the wooden aromas. The bottling is the next spring, with a period "sur lattes" of 2,5 to 3 years. Service: Serve chilled, as an "apéritif" with toasts of fresh goat cheese and figs marmelade, or with a whole refined meal such as eggplant caviar, gaspacho, and fish mousseline.
