Les Pouches Rosé
Cave Robert & Marcel - Saumur
Cabernet Franc 100 %
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 Cabernet franc vines grow on clay limestone soil, dating from the Turonian stage. The vineyard has been recognized as particularly favored due to its soil, microclimate and location in the Saumur region. Vines : 185 acres - 20 year - old .Yield 60 hl/ha
