Arnaud Lambert 2020 'Terres Rouges', Saumur Champigny, Loire Valley, France

(This estate is 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 dry-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. 

  • Winemaker: Arnaud Lambert
  • Variety: Cabernet Franc
  • Farming: Organic (certified)
  • Vine Age: 45 years on average
  • Terroir: St.-Cyr-en-Bourg, west-facing, some clay and silty chalk soil on limestone bedrock
  • Vinification: 100% de-stemmed, 10-15 days maceration, indigenous yeast fermentation: ½ in 2 to 3-year-old barrels and ½ in raw concrete tanks for 8 months. They are then assembled and aged for 6 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling where they are aged for 6-12 months in bottle before sale (15 mg/L total SO2).
