Les Pouches White
Cave Robert & Marcel - Saumur
100% Chenin
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-honoured 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„
The vineyard of Saumur is located 150 miles west of Paris. Soil with clayey and silty sands. Several hard limestone rocks underlie the Méron slopes up to the fault of the Loudunais. This particular soil and subsoil has good draining capacity and early ripening potential. Vines : 45 years old - 16 acres - Yield : 50 Hl/Ha
Crushing and destemming. Cold settling for 24 hours. Vinification at low temperature (17 to 19°C) for 2 weeks. Racking and aging in stainless steel tanks on thin lees for 3 to 4 months. Bottled early and stored in the cellars dug out of the tufa, where it continues to age in the bottle, protected from the light and temperature variations.
