100% Cabernet franc. Based in Saumur, in the Vallée de la Loire, the gem of Domaine Guiberteau is the Brézé hill. A handful of producers produce on this legendary hill, including the famous Clos Rougeard. Les Arboises is a subsection of the limestone-dominant Brézé hill and provides the wines with a deep, clay derived structure and density, resulting in a graceful and mineral expression of Saumur

Winemaker Notes

Romain Guiberteau

Domaine Guiberteau

by Romain Guiberteau
Romain Guiberteau produces magnificent wines from “grands terroirs'' where he displays the full potential of the appellation Saumur. Les Arboises 2016 is a “vin de garde” composed entirely of Cabernet franc from 53 year old vines planted in a clay-limestone soil with a southern exposure toward the butte of Brézé. A balanced combination of power and elegance, a very complete wine. Expect a fine, long, powdery palate loaded with ferrous, inky, spicy red and dark cherry-scented fruit and long sappy close. An endlessly fascinating, unique Saumur and a wonderful alternative to young Burgundy
