Domaine Frantz Saumon
DOMAINE FRANTZ SAUMON, Montlouis – Organic
Frantz Saumon used to be a forester in both Canada and France for several years but in 2001 he decided to take over a small three hectare property in Montlouis near Tours, beginning his vinification career. Frantz is another non-interventionist and works without chemicals in the vineyards. The winery is an underground cellar carved into the tuffeau, the ubiquitous fossil-rich clay of the region, and all the wines are vinified in barrels (some 228l, some 400l) only with the indigenous yeasts. Clos de Chênes is a dry wine made from Chenin grapes from a 95 year old vineyard on silex and clay. The wine is unfiltered and no sulphur is added.
