Le Troubadour
Saumur Rosé

Le Troubadour


Produced in very limited quantities, this Saumur Rosé is not presented in competition.


A subtle and aromatic Saumur Rosé that sings the joy of life and good humour…


Saumur Rosé. Formerly “Cabernet de Saumur”, the appellation changed its name in 2016 in order to avoid any confusion with the AOP “Cabernet d’Anjou” which is a sweet and mild rosé.


100% Cabernet Franc


On the hillside of Parnay, on the banks of the Loire.


This Saumur Rosé, Le Troubadour, draws its freshness from a soil of clayey sands on limestone mother rock (tufa) formed in the Cretaceous period.

Vine management and harvesting

The Domaine de Rocheville has been working in an eco-responsible way since its creation in 2004. Its philosophy of respect for nature was made official in 2011 by obtaining the Terra Vitis sustainable viticulture label and then its Organic Agriculture certification in 2019.
The estate’s plots are grassed in order to maintain a plant cover that reinforces the structure and richness of the soil. Weeding is mechanical, in accordance with the principles of Organic Agriculture.
Finally, we take care of biodiversity by planting roses at the head of the rows, by installing Blue Tit nesting boxes, by replanting hedges and shrubs at the edges of the plots…
We do all this to produce wines that are good for your palate, good for the planet and good for your health.
Our Saumur Rosé is harvested at optimal maturity with an average yield of 50 hl/ha.

Vinification and maturing

The bunches are first subjected to a short maceration with the skins for a few hours which will give the juice its superb colour. Then the grapes are delicately pressed at low pressure in a pneumatic press. After which the juice obtained ferments at low temperature. The Troubadour is born… It then must wait for about 5 months of maturing in stainless steel tanks before being bottled.


It is best drunk within the year but can be kept for 2 years.

Sensory discovery


What strikes you at first, is that the Troubadour has a very characteristic coral or light salmon colour, heralding aperitifs, and barbecues!


This Saumur Rosé has very aromatic notes of yellow fruit (vine peach, apricot), citrus fruit (grapefruit), melon, rose or wild strawberry, depending on the vintage.


The Troubadour de Rocheville loves simplicity and the joy of live. On the palate, it is tender, dry and delicately aromatic, full of finesse and particularly refreshing.

Wine and food pairing advice from the winegrower

The perfect companion for convivial moments in summer (aperitif, cold starters, grilled meat, or fish…), it will also subtly enhance your exotic, Mediterranean or Asian dishes: Thai-style prawns, apricot tajine…

Serve chilled, between 9 and 12° C.
