Chateau du Hureau, Tuffe
Coming from 15 parcels of old and young Cabernet Franc vines, Tuffe is a blend from different “terroirs”, scattered around Saumur and Dampierre/Loire. Here the common denominator is the tuffeau (around Saumur, we would say “la Tuffe”). Ruby-purple colour with appealing cassis, black cherry, and mineral aromas with hint of dried rose and spice. On the palate it’s between light and medium-bodied, pure, fresh, and moreish with chalky tannins and a core of cassis, black and red cherry flavours and very good length. Wonderful value here, especially for a 100% Cab Franc!
