La Source du Ruault 2018
Saumur-Champigny wines are made predominantly from Cabernet Franc, where they are typically light or medium-bodied, characterized by crisp acidity and forward, slightly spicy, berry fruit flavors. The appellation series of ‘The Ruault Spring’ is La Source du Ruault’s emblematic wine with its aromatic expression of red fruit. This domaine’s classic is made from Cabernet Franc planted in 8 hectares of clay-limestone terroir, farmed using organic methods and wines aged in vats and barrels 9 metres underground.
Made from 100% Cabernet Franc, La Source du Ruault’s ‘The Ruault Spring’ is characterized by a red, shiny silky color in its youth, and an authentic expression of the winemaker’s philosophy of “Produce, yes, but respecting the plant, the land and the weather”.
