Guiberteau's Saumur Rouge of Brézé


Domaine Guiberteau Saumur Rouge Les Arboises 2007

A stunning, single vineyard example of ageworthy Cabernet Franc made from the famous limestone-clay based soil of Brézé in Saumur (Loire Valley) by the super talented Romain Guiberteau. Hand-harvested and fermented naturally in concrete vats before they were aged in relatively new barriques (small barrels) for 18 months or more, << Les Arboises >> can be a little oak-centric in its youth but some patience and cellaring time will reveal the soft, supple red fruits, spices, tobacco and leafy characters of Cabernet Franc once the oak tones are well integrated and act as a supporting structure for the wine.


Vinous, silky smooth and elegant, this 2007 Saumur red will be excellent with all kinds of steaks, lamb and duck dishes but we also love to drink this with a big piece of crispy, properly seasoned Pork Cordon Bleu, or some yummy Beef Goulash from The Lokal Singapore (@thelokalsingapore). #InflorescenceAsia #Singapore #DomaineGuiberteau #SaumurChampigny #Brézé #Saumur #LoireValley #DiscoverWithMT
