France, Loire Valley

Located in the Loire Valley, Clos Rougeard is one of the few domaines that truly needs no introduction. Crafting the most revered Cabernet Franc in the world, alongside a very small quantity of Chenin Blanc, these wines hold legendary status amongst sommeliers and collectors alike.⠀

The Clos Rougeard old vine Cabernet Franc vineyards are located in the heart of Saumur’s tuffeau plateau, containing numerous types of topsoil covering a deep bed of limestone. In contrast, the estate’s Chenin Blanc vines in the iconic Bréze are on limestone-clay marls, long regarded as exceptionally ideal for crafting Saumur blanc. ⠀
