Why Buy Me
Fréderik Filliatreau is the fourth generation to run this estate of 40 ha just outside Saumur in the Loire Valley. Fréderik’s father Paul was quite innovative and changed the style of wine produced to a light, fresh, tank-aged style of wine. Filliatreau wines are clean, bright and approachable, delivering incredible quality for modest prices. They embody the evolution of winegrowing, which this family estate truly helped shape, in the Saumur region.
These vines have been farmed organically since 1998, just 10km from Saumur. Aromatic with tones of pear and apple. Elegant with lively acidity. Medium body with flavours following through of pear, even some pineapple hints. Excellent length. Well integrated, subtle oak.
