Designation

AOC SAUMUR

Tasting comment

Straw yellow color . On the nose  a discret opening ,  notes of grapefruit arrive then come the notes of nuts. The attack is firm, frank, direct. The complexity is enormous as the Chenin is able to do on the great terroirs.
Rich in tannin it is an exceptional wine for keeping.

Vines of mass selection on the Riparia transplant aged 16 years, pruned in cordon de royat.
The grass between rows is natural. The earthing-up is done in February and then removed in April. Interviews under the ranks are done in lace interceps during the summer period.

Biodynamic preparations:
1 500 Maria Thun in late autumn before the winter solstice
1 or 2 horn dung 500 in the spring
1 horn silica 501 after closure of the cluster.

Winemaking

The grapes are placed in the pneumatic press for a pressing of 4 hours. An important ventilation is made before the settling and then the fermentation is done in demis of 600 litres.

No sulfur is added during the vinification until bottling.
