Frantz Saumon used to be a forester in both Canada and France for several years. In 2001 he decided to take over a small three hectare property in Montlouis near Tours. Frantz is non-interventionist and works without chemicals in the vineyards. The winery is an underground cellar carved into the tuffeau, the ubiquitous fossil-rich clay of the region, and all the wines are vinified in barrels only with the indigenous yeasts.
Fresh and simple, it is straw-yellow in color with golden highlights. The nose screams peach and floral aromas with light citrus. Smooth and fresh, with a slightly savory finish.
