Story

The vintage
High Environmental Value from the 2021 vintage
Location
The Saumur vineyard covers 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 called tuffeau allows the vines to put down good roots and a moderate water supply.
In the vineyard
The plots are selected at the approach of the harvest, in August and September, for their ability to offer grapes rich in aromas. The harvest is carried out at the beginning of October, when the grapes reach advanced maturity.
Vinification
Destemming, light maceration and pneumatic pressing. Vinification in temperature-controlled vats at low temperature and early bottling in the tufa cellars where the wine continues to mature away from light and temperature variations.
Varietals
Chenin ou chenin blanc : 100%
