The Saumur Blanc is produced from 100% Chenin Blanc that grow in siliceous-limestone soils. Vinification methods include the settling of the must “debourbage” which concentrates the flavors, and extended contact with the lies to enrich the wine. There is no malo-lactic fermentation resulting in a wine that offers springtime aromas and a refreshing palate.
There is tart apple and pear on the nose with light stony minerality and lemon rind. On the palate the acidity adds structures with lemon and apple leading the flavors. A clean, pure finish makes this a classy pairing.
