About The Wine
The source of this beautifully broad and concentrated Chenin Blanc are old vines from his father's estate in Saint-Cyr, in Saumur-Champigny.
With more oak maturity and longer elevage this expression of the great Chenin grape is richer in feel than his other cuvees, with heaps of fruit power and length.
The minerality and electric edge is there, with Chenin's natural acidity in a cool climate crackling through.
Great cellaring prospect. But also a great drinking prospect...
About Arnaud Lambert
Young Arnaud Lambert joined his father Yves at Domaine de Saint-Just in Saumur in 2005. In 2017 his own Arnaud Lambert domaine came into being, merging into his late father's estate fruit sourced from exceptional vineyards on long-leases from the famous Chateau de Breze. His wines and his reputation have soared over the last few years.
He now manages some twenty different releases from nearly 50 hectares of wines, all now certified organic, with biodynamic certification in progress.
His whites (Chenin Blanc) and reds (Cabernet Franc) are made in decidedly Burgundian fashion, mostly individual vineyard expressions across three communes; Montsoreau and Saint-Cyr in Saumur Champigny, and Breze in Saumur itself.
