Red wine - 75cl bottle - AOC Saumur-Champigny
Grape : 100 % Cabernet-Franc
This wine offers an intense ruby-red robe, dense and concentrated. The nose reveals subtle minty nuances, red berry liqueur, and forest strawberries. The attack is straightforward and strong in the mouth, with a sensuality that immediately suggests the full potential of a great terroir. A somewhat complex wine, both powerful and subtle, revealing great mineral purity in the finish.
Red meat and game.
Crumbled flint and Late Turonian limestone.
An 80-are walled vineyard with old vines planted in 1904, overlooking the Loire River.
Light groundwork to preserve these old stocks and maintain great floral diversity.
Manual harvest in wooden crates, harvest sorting table before vatting using a conveyor belt. Fermentation in an open 45 hl cement vat at 16°C to 22°C to draw out the most possible aromas and richness; fermentation finished at a temperature of 24°C.
Vatting for 10 to 18 days.
