Elegance – Saumur Blanc 2017
Saumur is a commune in the Maine-et-Loire department in western France. The historic town is located between the Loire and the Thouet rivers and is surrounded by the vineyards of Saumur itself.The Region is known for its sparkling wines made by the traditional method, its red wines made primarily from Cabernet Franc and its white wines made from Chenin Blanc. “Elegance” is 100% Chenin blanc made in Stainless Steel vats.
The colour is straw yellow. This floral and well structured wine preserves its delicate fruitiness with remarkable aromatic complexity. On the mouth it is full and unctuous, well supported by a fine acidity that brings freshness and lengthens the finish. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif however, due to its complexity and strength, I recommend that the wine be paired with food. Try it with smoked salmon, grilled fish, fish chowder, chicken and pork dishes, or with cheeses such as Comté, Cantal and Beaufort.
