Domaine de la Croix Noyant White
Cave Robert & Marcel - Saumur blanc
White,Saumur blanc
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„
Grapes for white Saumur are grown throughout the Saumur area as well as in certain parishes in the Northern parts of the Deux-Sèvres and Vienne departments. White Saumur is made from Chenin Blanc grapes.The subsoil consists of the same tufa limestone that was used to build the famous Loire Valley castles.Vines : 45 years old -10 acres - Yield : 3.05 T./acre
The grapes are destemmed and briefly skin-macerated before they are pneumatically pressed. They are vinified in low-temperature-controlled vats and bottled early in the tufa cellars./nIn stainless steel vats with early bottling to trap the fruit.
