Nestled between the Loire and the Thouet, Pierre-Adrien`s vineyards covers approximately 35 hectares. For two generations they have grown the two flagship grape varieties of the region: Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc.

This delicious red wine is made with 100% Cabernet Franc taken from 30 year old vines. In the glass it has a deep purple colour. The mouthfeel is round having been aged for six months in old oak barrels to add texture, without dominating the flavour.

The palate is an elegant balance of floral violets and iris, with fruity redcurrants finished with a touch of liquorice and clove spiciness. This is perfect to drink now but will happily improve for another 5 years.

It is perfect with cured meats or full flavoured cheeses.

Pierre Adrien, Vignoble Vadé

A third generation winegrower, Adrien's earliest memories are working the apple press and roasting chestnuts with his grandfather. This instilled a passion for the Saumur region and later a passion for wine.

Since then, Adrien has evolved his winemaking technique. He took over as winemaker from his father in 2014. He is proud of every bottle that leaves the winery and he can't wait to show them to you.
