Winemaker's Notes:

Situated in the commune of Brézé, one of the most reputable for its white wine soil, our Saumur Blanc is a lively wine and of great freshness. It releases strong aromas of white flowers, and of a particular note we call "flintstone."

Our Saumur Blanc goes perfectly with first courses, shellfish and fish. The ideal serving temperature between 52 and 56°

My Notes:

About Domaine Fouet:

Situated in the wine - producing commune of St Cyr en Bourg, the Domaine Fouet perpetuates the family tradition of six generations. At the heart of the SAUMUR CHAMPIGNY appellation, Patrice and Julien Fouet are today responsible for a wine producing domain of some 15 hectares, combining modern techniques and respect for tradition.

With concern for respect of the environment, the vines of the Domaine are not chemically weeded but treated to encourage the grass between the vines. In addition to the ecological aspect, this technique offers qualitative advantages in the wines: reduction of output, increased natural alcohol level, and reduction of rot.

From the pruning of the vines (low output), to bottling (without filtering), everything is put in place to obtain the best possible quality of wine, a reflection of the SAUMUR CHAMPIGNY soil and of our experience. All these qualitative measures enable us to obtain many awards in various competitions (Guide Hachette of wine for exemple).
