The first cuvée produced by the estate, the one that has made - and still contributes to - the success of the Domaine. It is easy to drink young, although this wine is often quite charming a few years later ... Can be kept between 3 and 5 years.
A red wine that is light, gourmet and delicious. Served between 12 and 14°C, it pairs wonderfully with rillaux, lamb and most meats. It also remains an excellent choice with seafood.
On the nose, red fruits are revealed, such as strawberries and raspberries. In the mouth, its aromas will develop. You will discover a light and easy-drinking wine, ideal in any season.
Plots of 35-year-old vines cultivated in organic farming since 2017. They are planted on clay-limestone soil, located around the small village of Chaintres and in the towns of Dampierre sur Loire, Varrains and Chacé (south-east of Saumur) .
The harvest is 50% manual and 50% mechanical and is entirely sorted in the cellar. The grapes are destemmed and transported into stainless
steel vats. About ten days of maceration between 22°C and 25°C to preserve the fruit.
