Winemaker notes

The commune of Turquant is one of the most easterly growing zones within Saumur-Champigny, with close proximity to the river. Soils are comprised of soft limestone called "tuffeau" which is know for its ability to regulate moisture during the growing season. This expression of Cabernet Franc is refined, polished with a great deal of finesse.
