Situation
The Saumur vineyards cover over 800 hectares on the south bank of the Loire River.
Terroir
The key feature of this area is its clay limestone soil: this soft, white stone, known as tufa, used to build the Loire Valley Castles, promotes good root development in the vines and ensures a moderate water supply.
Vinification
The grapes are destemmed. Then light maceration on skins, followed by pneumatic pressing. Fermented in temperature-controlled stainless vats.
Maturing
Early bottling. The wine continues is aged in our tufa cellars, protected from light and temperature variations.
Varietals
Chenin blanc : 100%

Advice

Serving
Serve chilled (8-10°C).
Tasting notes
Pale yellow colour with brilliant highlights. Delightful and expressive nose marrying citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and tropical fruit aromas. Lively attack leading into a full and rich palate showing freshness. Intense, citrus-driven finish.
Food pairing
It is an ideal partner for seafood, grilled fishes, white meats, typical cheeses from the Loire region (Valençay, Saint Maure de Touraine).
