In the shadow of the steeple of the fifteenth century Romanesque church, the vineyards of the Château de Villeneuve are known for both their exposure and the limestone soil which gives the wine elegance and finesse.
This Saumur Champigny, from a certified organic vineyard, has a vivid velvet red/blue hue and bright fresh red fruit notes on the nose. The palate is clean and pure, with lots of silky red fruit, almost like a raspberry ripple ice cream. Fruit-forward nose, supple tannins, full-bodied mouth.
Enjoy this delightful Cabernet Franc with roast chicken, or grilled pork steaks or simply on it's own. A great alternative to Pinot Noir
