We welcome the spectacular wines of Romain Guiberteau to our range. Romain joined his family's vine growing business in 1996 following a stint at Clos Rougeard in Saumur Champigny. Romain is now making some of the Loire's greatest Chenin Blancs and Cabernet Francs, from low yielding, old vine parcels in Saumur.
The Saumur Blanc Breze is sourced from two old vine parcels of Chenin Blanc planted in 1933 & 1952. 1.2 hectares in total. Vineyards are planted with a density of 5,500 vines per hectare and the maximum yield is 35 hl per hectare. Soil is sand and clay with limestone base soil. Hand harvested. Pressing of whole clusters. Natural yeast fermentation in oak barrels (new & 1-2 years old). 18 months ageing on fine lees in barrel.
There is something otherworldly about the aromatics in this wine. Instantly appealing with its bright, bitter yellow fruits, honeysuckle, minerality, and scents of the forest. You can sense the old vines in this wine with its underlying richness and power.
