Producer: Vignerons de Saumur Region: Saumur, Loire, France Varietal: 100% Cabernet Franc Year: 2018
Notes From the Importer:
"The soil is very shallow in most places, with soft chalk mostly at less than 23 inches from the surface, resulting in a moderate, but fairly regular water supply, excellent for producing high-quality Cabernet Franc. The average age of the grape vines are 40 years."
"Once the grapes have been completely destemmed and crushed, they are fermented at 82 °F in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Pumping-over three times a day at the beginning of vatting and a total of 15 days on the skins extracts the full tannins. The wine is transferred to our cellars, 82 ft underground, for malolactic fermentation in tiled vats. It continues to age peacefully, protected from the light and temperature variations, for 6-10 months before bottling."
"Spicy, toasty bouquet, with hints of red-berried fruit and rosemary. The initial impression on the palate is round and full-bodied, with tannins that are already softening and a spicy aftertaste."
About the Producer:
"In 1957, around forty winegrowers grouped together to confront the economic difficulties of the era, pooling far more than mere financial concerns. At the time, Robert, Marcel, Yvon, Geneviève and the others, hailing from the same terroir, hewn from the same rock and sharing the same time-honored values, set up their cooperative at the top of the hill in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg. 'They chose to share their experience, their expertise, and their dreams.'”
