Story

Location
The Saumur vineyards cover more than 800 hectares on the south bank of the Loire.
Terroir
The main characteristic of the Saumurois region is its clay-limestone soil: this soft white rock, known as tuffeau, allows the vines to take root well and to receive a moderate amount of water.
Vinification
Total de-stemming, 10-day maceration. Vinification in thermo-regulated vats and bottling in the tufa cellars.
Ageing
The wine continues its maturation protected from light and temperature variations in the tufa cellars.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%
