100 % Cabernet Franc

Cold meats, poultry, grills or even fish…
Ideal now but will keep up to 2-4 years
First cuvee of our estate, this is the most representative of Saumur-Champigny appellation. This is a fun wine, light and fruity. It was the only cuvee made when I took over the Domaine in 1974 and so it has evolved throughout my career.
