Saumur white


€ 9,10 EUR

Produced from the Chenin grape variety, Elegance is a floral and structured wine, which expresses its delicate fruitiness with a remarkable aromatic complexity. Its gustatory harmony is based on notes of white flowers. Supple on the attack, the mouth is ample and unctuous, well supported by a fine acidity which brings freshness and lengthens the finish.

Vintage 2019:
- Gold Medal at the 66th Concours des Grands vins de France in Mâcon
- ★★ Guide Hachette des vins 2021
Guide commentary: "Coming from a harvest of very ripe chenin, this cuvée is intense on the nose with its aromas of yellow fruit (apricot, peach) and citrus zest. The palate is complex, smooth, warm and shows as much aromatic generosity as the olfaction. A wine that exudes maturity.

Vintage 2016:
- Silver Medal at the Concours des Vignerons Indépendants 2019
- Guide Hachette des vins 2020
Guide commentary: 'This is a wine that perfectly highlights the Chenin grape, after nine months of maturation. Very expressive, it is a condensation of white fruits, with touches of undergrowth. The attack is soft, the mouth supple, round and fat, and the finish so fresh, with notes of lime.
