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 grapes for our cuvée come from selected clay-limestone, tufa chalk, and shale terroirs to the South of the Saumur area. Careful ageing in our tufa chalk cellars enhances its freshness and finesse.Vines : 247 acres - 30 year-old -Yield : 74 hl/ha.
Hand-picked grapes, gentle pressing, and cool fermentation (65°F) ensure that all the aromas are preserved. Second fermentation in bottle of a selection of the best wines, according to the Méthode Traditionnelle./nThe bottles are stored horizontally on wooden laths in our tufa cellars for a minimum of 12 months before disgorging, to develop an incomparably fine bead.
Tasting notes
Pale yellow color. Fine, persistent bead. Fine, lively, complex bouquet, combining the freshness of Chenin Blanc and the floral overtones of Chardonnay with Cabernet Franc fruit. Lively initial impression on the palate, with a rounded structure, and an elegant follow-through. Lovely, long aftertaste, with hints of fresh fruits (pears, peaches).
Food pairing
Enjoy chilled (46-50°F) as an aperitif or simply for pleasure (soft cheeses, fruit tarts sorbets, etc.).
