This gorgeous little appellation is one of those that the French try to keep for themselves.
The grape is 100% Cabernet Franc which gives a big, fruity flavour
This Saumur is lighter in body than it's big sister wine from the next door Appellation of Saumur Champigny which is much stronger in flavour.
They are both very similar in character, so it is really a question of personal taste; if you like the lighter version of this wine or the stronger bodied version of the Saumur Champigny.
It can be paired with loads of different dishes - A wonderful Greek meze springs to mind with lots of lamb dishes and especially barbecued lamb chops.
Try also with plain roast chicken with herbs.
The flavour of this medium-bodied Saumur is raspberries, blackberries and plums. So very easy to match
Like all our wines, this is totally unoaked
