Frantz Saumon 'Mineral Plus', Vin de France 2020
Frantz Saumon established his Domaine in Montlouis-sur-Loire in 2002, after a few stints as a forester in France and in Canada, and a stage with Christian Chaussard of Domaine le Briseau, an influential voice in the “vin naturel” world who passed away not long ago.
In Montlouis, Frantz Saumon works about 5 different Chenin vineyards with a variety of soils. This is a blend of those different terroirs to represent the vintage in Montlouis as a whole. Always fresh and vibrant, dry and weightless.
