Le Caveau Wine Merchants - Frantz Saumon Rosé, Vin De Frantz (Natural, Loire Valley)
|1 x 750ml
Vin de Frantz Rosé is a blend of Gamay and local grape Grolleau; it delivers the perfect mix of delicate red fruit – think strawberry, raspberry, bitter cherries – with Frantz’s trademark minerality and bright, refreshing acidity. Beautiful rosé!
--- Frantz Saumon is not from winemaking stock. Indeed, he enjoyed a successful career in forestry management in Canada before returning home in the mid-90’s to set up his estate at Huisseau in the Montlouis region of the Loire between Tours and Orleans. He initially began with 3 hectares of vines but with subsequent acquisitions, his domaine now stands at 6 hectares: 5.5ha of Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc and ½ ha, red grape varieties. The vines are planted on soils of sandy clay, limestone and flint and farming is carried out strictly according to sustainable principles . The grapes are manually harvested, only indigenous yeasts are used.
Low Intervention = No chemicals in the vineyard, no additives (except for homeopathic amount of SO2) in the wine.
