Un Saumon dans la Loire

La Petite Gaule du matin - 2017 - Frantz Saumon

Frantz’s friends once wanted to name their bar La Petite Gaule du matin (which basically translates as “morning wood”); naturally, the town hall refused. And so instead, La Petite Gaule du matin became a superb sparkling pet-nat cuvée! With notes of yellow apple, and lemon... The delicate palate, characteristic of Chenin, is boosted by a beautiful profusion of bubbles and lots of freshness.

A blended cuvée of Chenin from Thouarcé and Sauvignon from St-Aignan-sur-Cher. The grapes are certified organic, acquired though the estate’s négociant business. In the winery: direct pressing, and separate fermentations for each grape variety, in vats made of resin and enamel-coated steel. The wines were blended around three weeks before bottling at the end of 2017. Disgorged in spring 2018, with zero sulphur from beginning to end! 



Frantz Saumon est l’un de ces vignerons déjà bien installé sur le territoire, mais qui est arrivé dans le vin un peu par hasard... Originaire du Berry, cet ancien forestier passé par le Canada lâche tout pour se consacrer à sa passion. On est à la fin des années 90... que de chemin parcouru depuis! Frantz suit la formation viti-oeno du mythique lycée d’Amboise et à l’occasion d’un stage...
