Les Clos Maurice encompasses 21 hectares of vines in the Saumur Champigny, Saumur Rouge, Saumur Blanc, Crémant de Loire, and Saumur Rosé appellations. Headed by winemaker Mickaël Hardouin since 2007, the estate has been certified organic (Ecocert) since 2012. This cuvée is truly a Vieilles Vignes - the vines range in age from 65-90 years old. These old vines produce far lower yields than younger vines, while their deep roots fully express the terroir, giving the wine incredible depth and character. 100% cabernet franc, this is vinified in a low intervention method, fermented with native yeast with no sulfur added and bottled without fining or filtering. On the palate, it’s as classic as it gets: luscious strawberry and raspberry flavors mingle with a hint of vegetal green pepper. Delicate minerality and a long, smooth finish are sure to make this a new favorite! Certified organic, low-intervention, vegan.
