Fabien Duveau

Loire | Saumur-Champigny | Chacé

Fabien Duveau is the 8th generation of his family to make wine in Saumur-Champigny — “one of the jewels of the Loire,” he believes. Expressing their individuality is a key objective in his winemaking. Farming organically and cultivating biodiversity in and around the vineyards are integral to Fabien’s aim of making wines that express both “the complex nature of the land and the know-how of its winemakers.” Fabien is deeply influenced by tradition, yet his innovative perspectives and and minimalist style infuse his wines with a freshness and delicacy that mark them as vibrant, eloquent examples of what Saumur-Champigny wines are at heart.

Fabien Duveau 2020 Saumur Blanc St.-Cyr "La Hunaudière"

From soils rich with silex, limestone and cailleux, the “basic” bottling from Duveau is anything but. Sourced entirely from the vineyard La Hunaudiere located in Saint-Cyr, this wine is bursting with energy and mineral grip. Fermented with native yeasts in 80% cement vats / 20% old oak barrels, followed by 6 months on the lees in neutral barrel.
