Description
 
The domaine is 9.4 hectares (under plantation, there is 12 hectares total), 7 of which are located in the great terroir of Brézé. A little more than half of the surface is planted to Chenin with the remainder planted to Cabernet Franc. Age of vines varies between 4 and 80 years old, with a hefty proportion of old vines. In 2000, Romain converted the vineyards to organic management and in 2003 he began the process towards the AB organic certification, obtaining it in 2007. In only a few years, Domaine Guiberteau has become one of the most sought after domaines in Saumur, their wines already stringently allocated and found in the best restaurants in France.

Guiberteau’s 2019 Saumur Blanc is from clay-limestone soils from lower on the hill in Brézé (older vines) and Clos des Carmes and Clos Guichaux (younger vines), all planted between the 1940s and 2012. Aged on fine lees in stainless steel tank until the spring and only lightly filtered, the 2019 exhibits a bright lemon-yellow color and a clear, pure, fresh and aromatic, intense and elegant bouquet with chalky limestone notes. Round, pure and mineral on the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, utterly mineral and tightly structured Chenin with ripe pear flavors on the crisp and salty finish. This wine is full of energy, tension and finesse, and it's one of the finest you can get in this price range. Tasted in May 2021. Wine Advocate 93 (2019)
