Saumur Rouge La Perrière

Story

Terroir
This cuvée comes from plots selected for their viticultural potential and their advanced maturity. The soils are mainly developed on tufa stone. The soft chalk provides a moderate but relatively constant water supply, which is conducive to quality viticulture. In fact, this soil absorbs excess rainfall in winter and releases it sparingly in summer.
Vinification
Long maceration (28 days) to extract the full potential of the grapes.
Ageing
A quarter of the cuvée is aged in French oak barrels in the La Perrière cellars at a depth of 25m, protected from light and temperature variations, for 10 months before bottling.
Varietals
Cabernet franc : 100%
