New vintage, the 2014 was rated : RVF 17/20, Bettane & Desseauve 16,5/20
Showing a pale colour with green hues, the Saumur Les Cormiers reveals right away a nose of white flowers, then mineral notes. It is a very expressive wine, clean on the palate, with a lot of elegance. A classy Saumur !

Wine rated (guide 2018) : 17/20 (Vin de référence)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 3***Stars (A production of high-quality, that could be used as a reference in its area)

About the vineyard : Doté de 25 hectares, Jean-Pierre Chevalier porte bien son nom : chez lui la chevalerie porte le blason du rapport qualité-prix et du raffinement qui s’expriment à chaque instant. Devenu l’un des chefs de file du Saumurois, il exploite au mieux cette côte calcaire de Souzay, à partir d’une agriculture de type biologique qui n’exclut pas les arbres truffiers. Le domaine est certifié bio depuis 2013. Le clos-de-la-bienboire est un vin de copains de grande gourmandise. La cuvée vieilles-vignes présente de la densité avec un velouté de texture raffiné. Les blancs ne sont pas en reste. Les vins évoluent parfaitement en bouteille, avec des millésimes anciens dignes de ce nom. Le grand-clos (issu d’une parcelle de 5 hectares devant le château) figure parmi les meilleures cuvées de l’appellation.

Wine rated (guide 2018) : 16,5/20 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 2**Étoiles (Ces très grands domaines, souvent dotés de terroirs fabuleux, sont des incontournables qui, par leur régularité et l'excellence de leur production, se doivent de figurer dans la cave des amateurs avertis)

About the vineyard : Villeneuve représente historiquement un grand terroir pour le chenin blanc sec et parfois liquoreux (appellation Coteaux de Saumur), au remarquable potentiel de vieillissement. Jean-Pierre Chevallier dirige avec exigence et passion le vignoble familial, partiellement situé sur la spectaculaire côte de Souzay. Traduisant au plus près l’expression de cette côte calcaire, cet œnologue formé à l’école bordelaise donne naissance à des rouges homogènes, colorés, à la matière fraîche, dans lesquels le fruit parle de plus en plus librement. Il a su affiner progressivement les élevages et s'affirmer avec régularité comme un des grands stylistes du paysage saumurois actuel.

The capital of the Huguenots under Henry IV, Saumur was, from the 12th century, an important wine trading town due to its ideal topographical conditions. Today, most of the region’s major négociants (wine traders) still have their headquarters in this area. The Saumur AOC was created by a decree of 31 December 1957. The Saumur appellation area encompasses 28 communes in Maine-et- ...
