The wine
The winegrowers offer you their very best in this historic cuvée from the Cave de Saumur. The "horse-head" logo is a reminder of the strong horse-riding tradition in Saumur, associated with the knowledge and expertise of the Cadre Noir elite cavalry unit.
The Saumur vineyards cover over 800 hectares on the south bank of the Loire River.
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.
Destemming and light skin contact, followed by pneumatic pressing. Fermented in temperature-controlled vats and bottled in the tufa cellars, where the wine continues ageing, protected from light and temperature variations.
Aged for a minimum of 4 months on the lees.
Chenin blanc : 100%


Serve chilled (8-10°C).
Tasting notes
Lovely pale-golden colour with silver highlights. Luscious, complex, intense bouquet, bursting with citrus (lemon, grapefruit) and tropical fruit (pineapple) aromas. Clean, soft and fresh on the palate. Long, citrus aftertaste.
Food and wine pairings
Serve as an accompaniment to fish and seafood, meat dishes, cheeses (goat's cheeses) and fruit tarts (lemon, apricot, etc.).
