The Yvonne Blanc displays the wooly textural quality that makes Chenin Blanc so captivating, woven around an intense backbone of chalky minerality.

The Saumur-Champigny Blanc and Rouge, the first cuvees Yvonne ever produced, come from the area around Parmay known as La Cote. Boasting clay/limestone soil cover over tuffeau stone, this terroir is equal to the more famous Breze. Both wines are seemingly capable of aging forever and while delicious upon release, 3-5 years in the cellar will allow them to reach perfection. Over the years Mathieu has dialed back the oak considerably allowing these incredible sites to shine through.

Saumur: it is the little village in the Central Loire that produces such fine Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc and has become the latest target of wine collectors looking for trophies, potential trophies, or just great wines to put in their cellars. It's sometimes easy to forget that if you go to Paris, "Saumur" is still just a name that is scrawled on blackboards at simple bistros. You might order a pichet for about 12 euros, and get it a little chilled. Almost always, it is delicious.

Château Yvonne produces Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc that rank among Saumur's very top echelon, and collectors have started to notice. All of Yvonne's wines are made without artifice: there are no additives and virtually no manipulations, with the exception of a minimal amount of sulfur at bottling. This is fresh, pure, light, and natural.
