Saumur Champigny 


100% Cabernet Franc

Region: Loire Valley 


As a passionate and devoted winegrower, Guillaume le Lay practices sustainable farming to respect the environment. He truly pays tribute to the heritage of his great grandfather.


Soil: Clay-mimestone
Located in the south of the Loire, within 3 different Clos (Clos de la Varenne, Clos Dovalle and Clos de la Crilloire). The vineyard is situated in the commune of Bellevigne-les-Châteaux and Brezé.


Château du Bellay is made from 50 year old vines. The excellent potential of these most beautiful plots allows a beautiful maturation of the grapes. Sustainable farming.


Selection of the best plots. Control of the maturity. Tasting of the grapes. The grapes are carefully picked on a sorting table. Fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats (22°C), long maceration of 30 days with gentle extraction of polyphenols.
The wine is matured in barrels in underground cellars 25 metres below ground level, resulting in a concentrated, rich and complex wine.
Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, in galleries dug in limestone tuff, protected from light and temperature variations. Then bottled and aged for a further 12 months.


Dark red colour. The nose seduces with its aromas of black fruits, truffles and hazelnuts, with delicate notes of roasting. On the palate, this red wine is harmonious and well balanced with silky tannins. Elegant and long finish with hints of chocolate.
This lovely Cabernet Franc wine is a delight with grilled and roasted meats, fish or mature cheeses. Best served at room temperature (16°C).
