Frantz Saumon began wine making after leaving a career in forestry management. Domaine Frantz Saumon was established in 2001 and now covers 6 hectares of the Loire Valley. The viticulture is organic and the terroir is dominated by the Huisseau Plateau. All the wines are handpicked and the grapes sorted on tables prior to maceration. The vineyards soil is a mix of sandy clay, limestone and flint. Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc cover 5.5 hectares, the rest is used for the cultivation of red grapes.  The estate is situated within the Mountlouis sur Loire appellation. The winery is located in a cave carved into the tuffeau.

The wine is fermented in barrel and only indigenous yeasts are used, the wine is also unfiltered, all this lends to it’s natural complexity and verve.

TASTING NOTES

This wine has a light golden colour and has aromas of citrus fruit and apple. It’s a savoury, dry and fruity example with good acidity. Elements of grapefruit and gooseberry are to the fore and the wine has a natural freshness and intensity. Recommended servings are with fish, pizza and chicken. This is a well-produced wine with a pristine quality to its finish.

This wine is from a certified producer.
