Type: White Wine
Grape: Chenin Blanc
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.
Minéral+ is (usually) a 'sec tendre' cuvée, coming from a blend of fruit from all Frantz's plots around Montlouis. Farming is organic. As the name indicates, the wine is meant to show off the very distinctive, mineral characteristic of Chenin Blanc grown in Montlouis.
A fresh and vibrant Chenin Blanc balancing the rich flavor profile of the grape with the mineralality of the region’s terroir. Notes of lemon fruit and zest, wet stone, and vibrant acidity.
