Story

Situation
The Saumur vineyards cover over 800 hectares on the south bank of the Loire River.
Terroir
The grapes come from selected clay-limestone, tufa chalk, and shale terroirs to the south of the Saumur area. Careful ageing in our tufa chalk cellars enhances its freshness and finesse.
Vinification
Handpicking of grapes, light pressing and cool fermentation (18°C) to preserve all the aromas. Second fermentation in bottle of a selection of the best wines, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle.
Maturing
The bottles are stocked on racks for at least 18 to 24 months (minimum) in our tufa cellars to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%

Advice

Serving
Enjoy chilled.
Tasting notes
Lovely pink colour with brilliant highlights. Elegant and regular bead. Subtle nose, combining the freshness and fruity bouquet of Cabernet franc (red berries, strawberry, cherry). Lively initial impression on the palate, with a well-balanced structure, and an elegant follow-through. Lovely and persistent aftertaste.
Food pairing
This Crémant de Loire rosé Brut is an excellent aperitif. It is also an ideal partner for starters and desserts (chocolate pie, cheesecake, fruit salad).
