Biodynamic & certified organic. As part of a long-term vision to develop premier cru vineyards in Saumur, Mathieu Vall�e introduced two single-vineyard wines � �Le Beaumeray� for reds and �Le Gory� for the white. A total of .5ha from two plantings, one from the 1960s and one from �99 (a selection massale from the famous �Le Bourg� of Clos Rougeard). Native yeast fermentation in 38hl foudres for four weeks, then moved for a few months into oak barrels (20% new), then is aged in bottle for another year before release. Some of the vines for this cuv�e may be somewhat young, but this site is of special provenance, and planted on some of the best terroir in La C�te. This is Cabernet Franc with a special sense of grace.
