Hureau Vatan Saumur-Champigny Tuffe 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The historic property of Château du Hureau is among the top producers of Saumur-Champigny. The château has been in the family for generations, and today, is run by fifth generation vigneron Philippe Vatan and his daughter Agathe. The Cabernet Francs of Château du Hureau are dark, intense and sappy, with plenty of lovely fruit balanced by acidity and minerality from the underlying tuffe soils. This underlying tuffeau (a soft chalk from the Cretaceous Period) is the common thread that gives the Saumur-Champigny its distinctive quality. Hureau's Tuffe is a delicious entry-level red, blended from 14 tuffeau-dominant parcels. Since the implementation of organic viticulture, Philippe has found the wines to be more pure, transparent and texturally complex.
