La Porte Saint Jean 'Les Pouches,' Saumur Rouge, France 2020

For 13 years, Sylvain Dittière has honed his craft, working with prime plots of Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc. His enology education, coupled with diverse internships under the likes of Gérard Gauby (Domaine Gauby, Roussillon), Marc Tempé (Domaine Marc Tempé, Alsace), Thierry Germain (Domaine Thierry Germain, Loire) and Antoine Foucault (Domaine du Collier, Loire), has paved the way for his success. In 2011, Dittière discovered a 3-hectare parcel of land in Saumur-Champigny known as Les Beaugrands and now possesses a total of 6.5 hectares.

Nestled on the outskirts of Montreuil-Bellay village, lies 'Les Pouches', a prime piece of land for growing grapes. Its soil is a combination of limestone from the Jurassic period, pure chalk, clay, and sand. The resulting wine is bright with silky tannins, and the texture is complex and layered. The grapes were allowed to mature fully due to the warmer vintage, resulting in a juicy yet not overly ripe wine. Similar to other cuvées from La Porte Saint Jean, this one would benefit from some time in the bottle or a few hours in a decanter.
