About Saumur-Champigny

In the heart of the Loire Valley, surrounded by the vineyards of Anjou and nestled within the larger Saumur AOP, is the region of Saumur-Champigny. Here, only red wine production is authorized—a Cabernet Franc-driven wine with smaller additions of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot d’Aunis permitted. With the help of the region’s limestone-based soil, tuffeau, Cabernet Franc’s expression is decidedly elegant with expressions of flowers and chalky minerals.
