Arnaud Lambert 2020 'Les Perrieres' Saumur Blanc, Loire Valley, France
(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 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.
- Variety: Chenin Blanc
- Vine Age: 65 years old
- Terroir: St.-Cyr-en-Bourg, silt on chalk soil on limestone bedrock
- Viticulture: Organic (certified)
- Vinification: Whole-cluster pressing. Indigenous yeast fermentation in older barrels (3-6 years old).
- Aging: 6 months in barrel.
