Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Domaine du Collier Saumur Rouge La Ripaille is a single-variety Cabernet Franc red wine made by Domaine du Collier under the AOC Saumur in the Loire Valley, France.

Viticulture runs through Antoine Foucault’s veins. When he was much younger, he worked at Clos Rougeard, a well-known winery owned by his father Charly Foucault and his uncle Nady Foucault, and in 1999 he created Domaine du Collier with his partner Caroline Boireau, which is made up of 6.5 hectares that are cultivated under the principles of biodynamic agriculture, planted with the Chenin Blanc variety and less than one hectare of Cabernet Franc.

“La Ripaille” is a vineyard located in the village of Brézé within the old walls of Ripaille castle. To make Domaine du Collier Saumur Rouge La Ripaille, the plots, with strains aged around 35 years, are cultivated with minimal intervention and without using chemical fertilisers or herbicides. The harvest is carried out manually with a thorough selection of the clusters. When the grapes reach the winery, they ferment with native yeasts and age for 24 to 36 months without racking. The wine rests in troglodyte caves that function as underground cellars where the temperature is very cold. Only a minimum amount of sulphur is applied before bottling.

Antoine Foucault cultivates his vines in soils that are particularly good for white wines, plots with a significant presence of limestone material that he has used to create bright and deep Cabernet Franc red wines.
