Saumur-Champigny AOC, Tuffe, Château du Hureau, 2019

(1 customer review)

Tuffe gets its name from the white-stone cave, locally called “tuffeau”, where this cuvée is aged, giving its unique wet stone flavour and earthiness to the wine.

A Loire wine at its best: earthy, leathery and mushroom notes on the nose. In the mouth very nice roundness, melted tannins, crisp red and black cherries, with a subtle and light structure that finishes on elegant pepper notes. The wild flavours of this Cabernet Franc can be easily associated with multiple cheeses and meat dishes.
Tuffe or tuffeau is a local name for the chalky limestone that is a pride in Loire Valley, not only its caves are hosting great wines, but its extraction gave birth to the most famous castles of France.

Food Pairing:

All goat cheeses, Camembert, Feta

    This benefits from a little air and then it’s a very nice, fresh cab franc.
