Tasting notes
Saumur Brut is an attractive, slightly golden colour. The bubbles are fine and the bead is regular. The floral bouquet is typical of Chenin Blanc. Saumur Brut is fresh and lively on the palate, with a very elegant aftertaste. Despite a very low sugar level, this wine is light and well-balanced thanks to its malolactic fermentation.

It will delight your guests throughout the meal. Saumur Brut is an excellent aperitif. Its crisp, lively character makes it the ideal wine with which to start off the evening. Saumur Brut should be chilled in an ice bucket. It is perfect choice to accompany all starters.
