AOP

White Saumur

Grape variety

100% Chenin

Location

A small plot in the heart of the village, the Clos de la Thibaudière extends over less than one hectare in the commune of Brézé, on the edge of the Fontevraud forest.

Terroir

The vines are rooted in a renowned soil that has been producing wines with a strong personality for centuries. A soil of sand and silt on the surface, a layer of clay, and tuffeau stone make Brézé one of the most beautiful “Blanc de l’Anjou” soils and are expressed in the wine by a characteristic minerality.

Vine management and harvesting

Initially worked in accordance with the Terra Vitis charter, since 2016 the vines have benefited from Organic Farming practices that give pride of place to natural grass cover and the preservation of the biodiversity.

Vinification and maturing

The grapes are delicately pressed in a pneumatic press for more than 3 hours, respecting the harvest. Then the juice is transferred to oak barrels where it is transformed under the effect of alcoholic fermentation. In order to keep the freshness of the Chenin intact, it does not undergo malolactic fermentation. The ageing in barrels lasts a minimum of 9 months for an exceptional expression of the grape variety and a beautiful complexity.

Storage

The Clos de la Thibaudière is splendid by its freshness but if you have patience, it will keep for nearly 20 years in a good cellar!

Sensory discovery

Appearance

Elegant pale-yellow colour.

Bouquet

This wine has delicate smells of citrus and white fruits. Its aromatic power is surprising.

Palate

The acidity and fullness of this wine are well balanced with lemon and citrus fruit notes and a mineral taste. Iodised and "salivating", this wine is lively and engraved, but also has a good lasting taste.

Wine and food pairing advice from the winegrower

Serve just chilled (12 to 14°C). It can accompany you throughout the meal and will be particularly appreciated with beautiful oysters, a scallop carpaccio, a smoked trout tartar, but also truffled white pudding with mushrooms or sushi. It is a partner of choice for refined dishes.
