Saumur-Champigny, Clos de l'Echelier, Roches Neuves - 2021

This Clos de l'Echelier comes from a superb Turonian limestone terroir facing the Loire. It has a bright red colour with purple hues. The nose is elegant, with fruity aromas of cherry and strawberry. The palate is ample and fat, with a lot of elegance. If it can be approached young, the long ageing will let its race burst! Guide Vert RVF: 94/100

In 1999, the entire estate went organic and biodynamic in 2000 and 2001.
