Type: White Wine
Frantz Saumon has been making wine in Montlouis since 2002 when he graduated from oenology school. Instead of taking the traditional route and working for an established producer to learn the ropes, Frantz wasted no time and purchased a small plot of land for his own winemaking.
Frantz Saumon’s signature varietal is Chenin Blanc, yet his Vin de Frantz wines allow him to experiment with other varieties. These wines are all about freshness, with relatively low alcohol.
In 2021 Frantz lost 80% of his production, but he was fortunate to be able to purchase organic fruit from an old friend in Sûd Ouest. This wine is 100% Colombard grown on Argilo calcaire soils. Direct slow press before fermentation, aged in stainless steel tanks. Tangy and mineral-driven, with notes of Granny Smith apple and lemongrass.
