Domaine des Sables Verts is a relatively new project owned and run by a young couple, Caroline Meurée and her husband, Hervé Maligne.

The estate is comprised mostly of Cabernet Franc (15.5 Ha) and the remainder 1 Ha in Chenin Blanc. The name, Sables Verts, or “green sand”, comes from unique greenish sand that is a component in many of the best vineyards of Saumur-Champigny, and mixes with varying amounts of Clay-Limestone and Limestone-Silica in the topsoil which ultimately sits atop the Mother rock of limestone tuffeaux that underlies much of the region. This green sand is rich in glauconite which gives the Cabernet Franc in this area both its freshness along with a sense of concentration.

Cabernet Franc with a relatively short maceration to achieve the easy drinking 'glouglou' style. 

An easy-drinking "glouglou" style red with tangy red fruits of raspberry and blackcurrant combined with a nice freshness. Pairs well with red meat, grilled chicken, charcuterie or Mediterranean cuisine. Drink young, in first 1 to 3 years, and with a little chill.
