The Saumur Champigny land, on the south of the Loire and bordered by its tributary, the Thouet, benefits from conditions which are well suited to growing vines.
The land enjoys a special microclimate. The Loire and the Thouet protect it from too much rain and this, in conjunction with the calcareous clay soil produces wines full of character and terroir expression.
A stones throw from Saint Cyr en Bourg, the Brézé land is renowned as one of the best sites for Loire Valley white wines.
The vineyards have been celebrated since the 15th century, by Good King René d’Anjou and the poet Joachim du Bellay amongst others.
This winery were showing their products at a cool-climate wine fair in Paris a couple of years ago when we met and tasted. Nobody was asking for them back home but they were just so interesting and sophisticated that we took a chance.
The Duveau family make a range of wines but we stock just three currently.
