"100% Cabernet Franc. 18 to 35 year old vines from the best parcels, grown on Jurassic and Turonian soil. This blend comes from a selection of parcels situated on the domaine’s best soil, where Cabernet Franc expresses all its aromatic complexity. The best care is given to the vines in order to get high quality grapes and the perfect ripeness. The vinification and the maturing of this wine make it robust with silky tannins. Aromas of red and black fruits, lightly stewed, with a beautiful persistency in the mouth, perfect for aging. Sustainable & Vegan.
Situated in the south of the Saumur region, Domaine du Vieux Pressoir was bought in early 2015 by Claude Vagnon, a retired industrialist. The winemaking is currently in the hands of Frédéric Etienne, who previously worked at Château des Noyers in Anjou. All stages of the vinification process are subject to meticulous care and attention, resulting in wines of exceptional quality. The estate spreads over 26 hectares planted with Chenin Blanc, a little Chardonnay and Cabernet Franc.
The Saumur Puy - Notre - Dame appellation includes a group of Saumur vineyards located in 17 villages around Puy Notre Dame. For its role in highlighting the region's rise to AOC fame, Domaine du Vieux Pressoir can be credited as one of its greatest proponents for official recognition." -Importer
