This first vintage that bears the name of the domain of Sylvain Dittière quickly set the tone by posting a generous and refined style.
It is an expressive Saumur-Champigny on the black fruit and flowers. Its bouquet is particularly refined and harmonious where red fruits mixed with a spicy palette of the most distinguished.
In the mouth, the masters of the tannins is impressive with lots of fruit in a velvety and juicy flesh.
Very beautiful expression of a cabernet-franc harvested at maturity.
18 months for the 2016.
Vineyard of 40 years on argilo-limono-sandy ground on Middle turonian.
The field is starting to make a solid reputation on the Web, on starry as well as export tables. Sylvain Dittière is the son-in-law of Charly Foucault (Clos Rougeard).
Our 1st visit on 28 July 2015 enabled us to discover the "character", his "breeding cave" and all of its red and white wines: purity of the fruit picked ripe, silky tannins, energy worthy of great wines and exemplary balance.
We're on a level rarely achieved in the Loire region, if not to the Clos Rougeard.
That's why we referenced it immediately on bringing a few cartons. There is no doubt that d "here one or two vintages, all will be pre-sold before even be bottled. Enjoy it yet because the prices are really reasonable given the exceptional quality of the nectar!
