Cette première cuvée qui porte le nom du domaine de Sylvain Dittière donne rapidement le ton en affichant un style généreux et raffiné.

C'est un Saumur-Champigny expressif sur les fruits noirs et les fleurs. Son bouquet est particulièrement raffiné et harmonieux où les fruits rouges se mêlent à une palette épicée des plus distinguée.

En bouche, la maitrise des tanins est impressionnante avec beaucoup de fruit dans une chair veloutée et juteuse. Très belle expression d’un cabernet-franc vendangé à bonne maturité.

18 mois d'élévage.

Vigne de 40 ans sur sol argilo-limono-sableux sur turonien moyen.

Le domaine commence à se faire une solide réputation sur la toile, sur les tables étoilées ainsi qu'à l'export. Sylvain Dittière est le beau-fils de Charly Foucault (Clos Rougeard).

Notre 1ère visite du 28 Juillet 2015 nous a permis de découvrir le "personnage", sa "grotte d'élevage" et l'ensemble des ses vins rouges et blancs : pureté du fruit cueilli à belle maturité, tanins soyeux, énergie digne des grands vins et équilibre exemplaire.
On est sur un niveau rarement atteint dans la région Loire si ce n'est au Clos Rougeard...

Voilà pourquoi nous l'avons référencé immédiatement en ramenant de suite quelques cartons. Nul doute que d''ici un ou deux millésimes, tout sera pré-vendu avant même d'être mis en bouteilles. Profitez-en encore car les prix demeurent vraiment raisonnables au regard de la qualité exceptionnelle du nectar !

The Domain The Saint John Gate

The Domaine La Porte Saint-Jean is beginning to build a solid reputation on the web, on starred tables and for export. Sylvain Dittière is the son-in-law of the late Charly Foucault (Clos Rougeard). Our first visit on July 28th 2015 allowed us to discover the "character", a winegrower of a rare dynamism and an extreme requirement. We also discovered his "breeding cave", a superb troglodyte cellar and his red and white wines: purity of the fruit picked at a good maturity, breeding of a formidable precision, draconian sorting, silky tannins, natural energy and exemplary balance, nothing less... We are on a level rarely reached in the Loire region, except at Clos Rougeard... Enjoy it again because the prices remain really reasonable in view of the exceptional quality of the nectar! A talent to be followed very closely... PORTRAIT FROM THE 2017 GUIDE OF THE REVUE DU VIN DE FRANCE "A talented thirty-year-old, Sylvain Dittière has worked for the Gaubys, Thierry Germain, Château Yvonne and Clos Rougeard, where he became involved with the Foucault family. This very serious apprenticeship naturally led him to set up in 2011 in Montreuil Bellay, in an old and very cool cellar, perfect for the long maturation that is his trademark. The original range includes a Sauvignon Blanc on clay and sandy soils, aged for 14 months in barrel, and a Chenin, La Perlée, which has spent 24 months in barrel. The two reds are very well controlled, offering exciting flavours and a remarkable frankness of expression, with a patina of great precision and rigour in their ageing. This estate is making a remarkable entry in our guide this year
