Coming from 15 parcels of old and young Cabernet Franc vines, Tuffe is a blend of different "terroirs", scattered around Saumur and Dampierre / Loire. Here the common denominator is the tuffeau (around Saumur, we would say "la Tuffe"), which can be found at anything from a pair of yards underneath the surface. Differences in soils, exhibition, age of the vines: this patchwork is the real nature of the Saumur-Champigny appellation, and we want "Tuffe" to be an example of the charm of our appellation. From a serious basis of really ripe Cabernet Franc grapes, this is a really serious wine...But which doesn’t take itself too seriously! Its delightful lack of pretension that will please one and all!
