    Winemaker Notes

    On the nose, subtle notes of honey, pineapple, and orchard fruits (green apple, pear). On the palate, these notes continue, coupled with salinity, minerality, and a long finish.

    Chateau de Fosse-Seche, France
    Few wineries impress with such an illustrious history as Château de Fosse-Sèche. First planted to vine by Benedictine monks in the 1200s, the Pire-Keller family established the modern incarnation of the estate in 1998. Situated near the tiny village of Brossay, two brothers, Adrien and Guillaume Pire, tend to the 45-hectare property with the utmost care and consideration of the ecosystem. Surrounded by woods and fields, they farm alfalfa and raise goats and bees in addition to their vineyards, and have a nationally recognized bird sanctuary on the property. Most vineyards in the Saumur and Saumur-Champigny wine regions are grown on a porous yellow limestone known as tuffeau. However, the 17 hectares of Fosse-Sèche’s biodynamic vines are planted on a distinctive Jurassic-era flint plateau with gravel and clay. The unique soils and the curved aspect of the vineyards allow for the fresh breeze to cool the vines rooted in heat-absorbing flint soils. The climate there favors slow, progressive, and balanced ripening. The estate is both Ecocert and Biodyvin certified and harvesting is by hand. In 2016, Guillaume and Adrien invested in concrete eggs for fermentation, moving away from oak barrels. Fermentation is with native yeasts. The wines of Château de Fosse-Sèche shine with a focused minerality and typicity and this property is widely recognized as one of the finest producers of the new Loire Valley.

    Marked by great châteaux built with the same tuffeau limestone that is also responsible for the excavation of so many of the famed Loire caves, Saumur is famous for its Chenin blanc based sparkling wines. Inside the Saumur region, Saumur-Champigny creates some of the Loire’s greatest Cabernet Francs.

    Unquestionably one of the most diverse grape varieties, Chenin Blanc can do it all. It shines in every style from bone dry to unctuously sweet, oaked or unoaked, still or sparkling and even as the base for fortified wines and spirits. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Somm Secret—Landing in South Africa in the mid 1800s, today the country has double the acreage of Chenin Blanc planted compared to France. There is also a new wave of dedicated producers committed to restoring old Chenin vines.
