Cave de Saumur ''Les Pouches'' Chenin Blanc 2019 - Saumur, FR
Varietals: Loire Chenin Blanc
Flavors show a little citrus, a lot of peach, and a dusting of minerals. Bone dry and crisp, it ends with a surge of ravishing acidity. Medium bodied with pleasing intensity, try with light pasta dishes or a warm Goat’s Cheese salad.
The Cave de Saumur, founded in 1956 by 40 growers, is a co-operative operating under the umbrella of the Alliance Loire organisation, a conglomeration of co-ops vinifying grapes from more than 850 growers covering 4,500 hectares across the entire Loire region. 160 growers now form the Cave de Saumur around the town of the same name and even after nearly 60 years they are under the leadership of only their third President, Jean-Louis Bazille.
