A well -known appellation, maybe a too well -known one which went overboard ! Jean Noël Millon’s goal was to come back to the basics of winemaking by taking over the family domain in 2002. Today ahead of 14 hectares, mainly in Cabernet Franc, the major grape variety in the Loire Valley, in biodynamics since 2007, he got himself known for the sincerity of his juices and his straight wines.
In red, they are rich, deep, joyful and digest due to an impeccable work in the vineyard with scratching, grass cover and respect of the biodiversity and by following the lunar calendar. Discrete but efficient, a Saumur winemaker for wine enthusiasts. And we do like his wines, oh my god !
