Arnaud Lambert is considered to be one of the most talented winemakers in Loire regularly producing what are amongst the best wines in and around Saumur. Practicing bio-dynamic viticulture and bringing a Burgundian approach to his winemaking, his Cabernet Francs are perfumed, fresh and make for delicious drinking over the warmer months.
Fruit for this wine is sourced from a 3.7 ha west facing site on light silty sand over limestone on the southern side of Brézé. Its 100% destemmed and fermented with partial whole berries with indigenous yeast in concrete tanks with a very gentle maceration using infusion and no pump overs.

Mid weighted and refined in its feel, expressive, finely cut red currant and red cherry fruits are spread across the palate with some red liquorice, herbs du Provence, earth and spice elements ensuing. Fine grained tannins finishing fresh, elegant and juicy.
