About Producer Nerdy stuff Serving

Cave Robert et Marcel, established in 1957 by a group of forty innovative winegrowers, stands as a prominent cooperative winery in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg, within the renowned Saumur Champigny region. The cooperative's foundation was driven by the need to navigate economic difficulties, and it has since expanded to include around 300 dedicated members.

The winery is particularly distinguished by its extensive network of 10 kilometers of underground tunnels. These tunnels, which provide a unique and ideal environment for aging wine, are a testament to the winery's commitment to quality and tradition. This subterranean labyrinth plays a crucial role in the production of their acclaimed Saumur Blanc, Rouge, Rosé, Saumur-Champigny, Saumur Brut, and Crémant de Loire wines.

Vineyard

The parcel is located on the hillside surrounding the Berrie fortress, on a terroir dominated by Turonian limestone. The Chenin blanc or Pineau de la Loire, the single grape variety of this cuvée, expresses itself particularly well here and the vines naturally produce small bunches, full of richness and a lovely golden colour. A cuvée full of power, elegance and smoothness.

Fermentation

Hand-picking at the end of October, when the harvest reached the beginning of over-ripeness. Transport in crates and delicate pressing of the whole bunches. Slight settling of the must. Entonnage en barriques bourguignonnes (4 and 5 wines), followed by alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, bringing ripe fruit notes, fat and complexity.

Maturation

Maturation in barrels in our natural tufa galleries for 12 to 14 months with regular stirring.
