This red Saumur-Champigny was made organically and biodynamically by one of the appellation's rising stars. More info

The Plume cuvée is a red Saumur-Champigny made from Cabernet Franc. It is made from 50-year-old vines grown organically and biodynamically across 8.8 hectares of vineyard. The terroir there is rich in clay and chalk.
After being harvested by hand, the bunches are destemmed before vinification. The only sulphur added during the process appears during bottling. Little to no additives are used, and the juice ferments using wild yeasts. The wine matures in concrete vats for 5 to 6 months, depending on the vintage.
In the glass, this Saumur exudes a fresh nose of red fruit, black fruit, and gentle spices. The palate is flavourful with a nice finesse to it. This is a cuvée that can be enjoyed now, whilst it's still fruity. Serve alongside a beef fillet or roasted veal.

Saumur-Champigny Plume Bruno Dubois serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Rôti de veau confit en cocotte, Cochon grillé , Filet de boeuf.

    Information about domain Bruno Dubois

    Bruno Dubois took up the reins of “Domaine Dubois”, a family property owned by his father and his uncle, to make his first vintage in 2002. This wasn't the very beginning of his wine journey, though, having built solid foundations learning from some of the finest (la Tour du Bon, Marcel Lapierre…).
    Conversion to organics and biodynamics took place in 2009 and 2015 respectively. Located in Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg, the domain now spans 11.3 hectares, shared between 2.5 hectares of Chenin and 8.8 hectares of Cabernet Franc. These vines have an average age of 50 years old, where they grow in soil that is rich in clay and chalk.
    These cuvées stay true to the fruit from which they are made, resulting in wines that are pure, flavourful, and fine. The work of a superb artisan at an up-and-coming domain!
