- 100% Chenin Blanc grown in argilo-calcareous soils in Souzay-Champigny. Lieu-dit Parnay.
- Fermented in oak barriques - 400 to 600 litres for 2 months. A further 9 months of élevage.
- This enclosed plot of an old manor house attached to a church dating to the 11th century was planted in 2007 at a high density of 10,000 vines per hectare.
- "The 2018 Saumur Blanc Clos Romans comes from very dense tuffeau soil and was aged for 6 to 8 months in 5-hectoliter barrels. The nose is tropical and floral – mango and orange blossom — with an attractive wooliness. Full-bodied, but fresh and light on its feet. Flavors of tangerine and rosewater develop with hints of crush shell through to the long mineral finish."
