Loire Valley

Bruno DuBois "BD" Saumur-Champigny '17

Bruno Dubois produces a limited amount of wine, and although a smaller producer, he is proving to have an big impact. Farming a mere 3.5 hectares of vineyards with vines aging between 45-65 years old that he's been maintaining since 2002, he inherited this all from his father and uncle (farm and winemaking genetics!). His maintenance includes inter-planting with native brush and trees, flora and fauna are nurtured with bird houses, bat shelters and bee hives. His impact involves the promotion of organic farming, as he is certified organic and biodynamic; he is one of the foremost defenders of the terroir and land of Saumur-Champigny alongside winemaker and fellow friend, Thierry Germain. He also studied with the likes of Marcel Lapierre in Beaujolais, truly learning the respect and cultivation of land and vine. The "BD" bottling showcases Dubois' style, which is lightly extracted Cabernet Franc with natural depth and concentration from lower yields, aged for 10 months in concrete tank. Cabernet Franc is grown in soils of limestone, clay and the famous soil of the region, tuffeau. You'll feel right at home in the Loire Valley with this stunning example of Saumur-Champigny.
