Winemaker Notes:  "There is a lifted, intriguing and seductive perfume of wild rose, red berries and pine forest leading to a wonderfully delicate palate--bright and juicy yet almost ethereal--with the same, haunting characters as the nose, very fine tannins and only a hint of something smoky on the finish." 

100% Cabernet Franc. Les Chapaudaises is located in the small village of Bizay, within half a kilometre of Saumur's prized hill of Brézé. It's next to Guiberteau's monopole Clos de Guichaux, on the same sandy tuffeau limestone, the vines a mix of Chenin Blanc and old-vine Cabernet Franc. One hectare of the Chenin is leased to Romain's right-hand-man, Brendan Stater-West, with the remaining Chenin finding its way into the Saumur Blanc. But it's the 1948-planted Cabernet Franc that is Guiberteau's prize here. 

The fruit was de-stemmed and wild-fermented in concrete and aged in conical Rousseau vats. This is incredibly lyrical and perfumed, and dare we say, a Burgundian expression of Saumur. Guiberteau's second release from this site is slightly more voluptuous than the first (2017), with a swish of caressing texture and flavours of red fruit and florals mingling with earthy depths. It typifies the layered freshness and fusion of fruit and rock that is the Guiberteau rouge hallmark.
