Chateau de Fosse-Seche Saumur Rouge Eolithe 2013

External Review:

An inviting Chenin Blanc with fleshy body, ripe arpicot flowers and tangy acidity. The vines are situated in the heart of the Saumur's pastoral, historic countryside. Alongside a medieval Château, once stood a priory. Years after the Revolution changed the order of things, the domain became a large property, covering 400 ha ca. 1904. This was broken up and now the Domaine Fosse-Sèche owns 45 ha of Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Practicing Biodynamic.

A mix of Cab Franc and Cab Sauvignon with a savage nose, and a dense, earthy expression of fruit. Clean, medium bodied, matured in 60% cask and 40% in barrique, displaying little else but fruit and balanced acidity on the palate. The vineyards soils are Jurassic silica and are situated in the heary of Saumur's pastoral, historic countryside. on the property, a medival Chateau once stood and next to that a priory. Years after Revolution changed the order of things, the domaine became a large property, covering 400 ha ca. 1904. This was broken up and now the Domaine Fosse-Seche owns 45 ha of Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Practicing Biodynamic.
