Paul & Christina Fillitreau
“Saumur’s other claim to wine fame is Saumur-Champigny, the Loire’s most fashionable, and therefore often overpriced, Cabernet Franc-based red. In particularly ripe years these fragrant, silky-textured, gulpable liquids can benefit from careful maturation in small oak barrels. Filliatreau, Foucault Frères and Chateau de Hureau are some of the better producers, and superior bottlings can continue to evolve for years in bottle.” – Jancis Robinson
