Conducive soil and climate
The appellation area covers 27 towns in Maine et Loire, 9 in Vienne and 2 in Deux-Sevres. The vineyard is scatted throughout small islands on top of Tuffeau hillocks and eocenes outcrops.
The climate is mostly tempered and oceanic but the Saumurois hills slow down the west winds; therefore the farthest parcels from the Loire river suffer from a continental climate influence
Saumur Blanc wines
There are 2 types of Saumur white wine: spring cuvee and wines of guard. The spring are pale yellow with green reflects and delicate floral perfum. Wines of guard are darker with mineral, compoted white fruits flavours.
Exceptional wine and food pairings
We recommend Saumur chilled Saumur white wine with fish, white meat and pressed cheese.
