Domaine du Vieux Pressoir is located in Vaudelnay, a small village in the Loire Valley. Frédéric Etienne is the winemaker and manager of the 26-hectare estate, which is certified HVE (Haute Valeur Environnementale). The property dates back to 1892 and was a key player in the creation of the Saumur appellation in the 1930s as well as more recently the smaller appellation of Saumur Puy-Notre-Dame in 2009, which itself has been a winegrowing village since the 13th century.
This gorgeous Cabernet Franc is from select parcels on the best soils in the Saumur Puy-Notre-Dame appellation. You get bounding forth heaps of aroma, red and black fruits, very lightly stewed and opulent with sweet flavour, beautiful persistency. One for the cellar and to enjoy over the coming years.
