Arnaud Lambert 2014 "Clos de L'Etoile" Saumur Rouge, Loire Valley
(Formerly known as Château de Bréze)
While Arnaud’s family hails from the Loire, he is the first in his lineage to produce wine under the family’s name. He farms organically (certified!) on the hill of Brézé, a unique elevated terroir predominantly planted on tuffeau soils, with a mix of clay, over a hard limestone bedrock. He strives to showcase the terroir of each vineyard he farms, which is why he creates so many different bottlings of Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc.
- Size: 1.80 ha (4.45 ac)
- Variety: Cabernet Franc
- Vine Age: Planted in 1990
- Terroir: Sand and limestone soil
