Aromatic Dry White Wine
The Legrand family is one of the oldest vigneron families in Saumur, specialising in Cabernet Franc, the principal red grape of Saumur. Legrand plants her Chenin on gentle slopes in enclosed vineyards offering weather protection. Well known for its limestone soils (locally called tufa), Saumur and the Loire is often referred to as the Garden of France. French and brilliant whites, earthy and intense reds.
The Saumur Blanc offers organic stone fruit flavours, a little butterscotch, chamomile tea and cheese rind, making it an archetypcal Chenin and incredible value too. A little bit of bottle age has helped the acidity soften and the aromatic complexity has come to the fore.
