Food Pairings for Chateau du Hureau Saumur Champigny Tuffe
Differences in soil composition, in exposure, in vineyard age, this mosaic is typical of Saumur Champigny and this cuvee « Tuffe » aims to show the most charming side of the appellation. On a very serious basis of ripe cabernet franc grapes, it is just a wine that doesn't take itself too seriously! Tasty, fruity, and able to be a joyful companion for the entire meal or ever until the end of night...with moderation, of course! Sourced from 15 separate plots of young and old vines (some 70 years old). The suppression of the secondary buds in the spring (ébourgeonnage), the summertime crop-thinning (éclaircissage), the stringent selection during picking, the long fermentations (25 to 30 days) and the élevage (10 to 20 months in the tuffeau cellars), all contribute to create a red wine that is rich, smooth and supple. Ageworthy for 2 to 7 years.
