L’Île Quatre Sous is sourced from one very distinct site: an island in the Loire river called ‘L'Île Quatre Sols,’ where the classic Saumur clay-and-limestone soils are augmented with a fair bit of sand. Sandy soils often translate into wines with softer tannins, which is definitely true here. The wine comes off as playful and irrepressibly yummy.

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.
