A wine of unique freshness and smoothness. Very consensual in terms of agreement with all culinary cultures.
Keeping potential : 3 to 5 years.
Un rouge léger, sur le fruit, d’une très grande polyvalence en terme d’accord avec les plats. De la poêlée de légumes aux viandes en sauce, en passant par une grande partie des poissons.
Fresh, elegant and silky wine, fine tannins and lots of fruit (ripe red and black fruits). Lots of roundness, this is a typical style of Loire reds. To drink in its youth. To be served between 12°C and 14°C.
The 30-year-old vines of Château Fouquet are located in Brézé, about 10 kilometers east of Saumur, on a chalky clay land. They have been worked according to the rules of organic agriculture since 1998 and in biodynamics since 2017.
Exclusively hand picked, the grapes are them destemed above the tanks. The filling is done by gravity in the vats in the wine cellar. Then, we will have about 15 days of maceration in stainless steel vats around 25°C.
