Saumur White “Chenin du Puy” 2014 Frédéric Mabileau winery – Biodynamic cultivated wine


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The vineyard of the Domaine Frédéric Mabileau is established since 1620 and covers in total 27 hectares in production. It is established mainly in the wine-growing town of Saint-Nicolas-de Bourgueil and produces wines in Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil, Bourgueil, Touraine, Saumur Blanc and Anjou appellations. This terroir is located between Indre-et-Loire and Maine-et-Loire. Frédéric Mabileau has been managing this winery since 1988 and leads his vineyard according to the rules of organic agriculture since 2007.

The Domaine Frédéric Mabileau has been certified ECOCERT since then.The Cabernet Franc grape prevails on the sandy-gravelly terroir of the Frédéric Mabileau estate (Cabernet Sauvignon is the secondary grape variety). On the gently sloping hillsides of this part of the Loire Valley, grapes yield structured and opulent wines, while the more clayey soils – like those of Bourgueil – lead to more plump wines. Frederic’s vines are 35 to 50 years old and are the origin of wines with floral and fruity notes. During the harvest, the grapes are picked by hand and are sorted on the table, before being destemmed. This method preserves the intrinsic characteristics of the grape until it is put into the vat. The result is a more plump, balanced, supple and concentrated wine. This domaine is distinguished by the expressiveness of the well-colored Cabernet Franc, very aromatic, woody and oily. Starting in 2003, Frédéric Mabileau redesigned his wines and his Cabernet Francs became sharper, which was enough to increase the popularity of his winery.

“Le Chenin du Puy” is known as Saumur Blanc appellation. This Loire wine, comes from the controlled vinification of Chenin. Aging takes place for 12 months in demi-muids. Frédéric Mabileau only produces 1000 bottles of this wine.
