Product Description

100 per cent Cabernet Franc. Les Motelles comes from a mature single-site in the south of the appellation. The name seems to reference a rocky terroir, perhaps the gravelly component of this clay-dominant terroir surrounding the village of Montreuil-Bellay. The site is a 1.4ha lieu-dit planted by Romains grand-père in 1955. It is cropped at a freakishly low 25 hl/ha (the maximum rendement for Grand Cru Burgundy rouge is 35 ha/ha). It is naturally fermented in concrete before resting for 18 months in a mix of new and one, two, and three-year-old barrels. Well positioned on the perimeter of ripeness, this is top-tier Saumur. Its decidedly perfumed nose focuses on crushed blackcurrants, cherry and sweet violet. As the wine hits the tongue there is a surge of impressively pure, vibrant, smoky cherry fruit bound by a swath of creamy tannins, with good grip and lingering smokiness. W-O-W.
