SAUMUR PUY NOTRE DAME - SAUMUR Philippe Elliau

DOMAINE DE LA FUYE

aoc /appellation: SAUMUR PUY NOTRE DAME, SAUMUR

Domaine de la Fuye is in the Middle Loire region, famed for its Cabernet Franc red wines. When Philippe Elliau took over the family estate more than 10 years ago, . he began a conversion to organic farming. His goal was to have his wines express the unique terroir of his vineyard. “I want to respect the environment and pass a clean, natural domain to future generations.” The 28-acre domain is comprised mainly of clay and limestone soil. The latest official appellation of the Loire Valley, AOC Saumur Puy Notre Dame, was created in 2008. This was the result of 30 years of hard work by fewer than 20 winemakers.
