Chateau Targe Rose
This intensely coloured Rose, with salmon pink reflections, offers appealing red-berry and boiled sweet aromas, a great fullness in the mouth, and a fresh finale that encourages to taste it again.
Eight km away from the city of Saumur, on the side of the cliff of our small town Parnay, the vine blocks of Targé are grouped on the clay-and-limestone coteau, just up from the Château. The Chenin and Cabernet Franc give different expressions depending on the thickness of the layer of clay on the limestone rock: the thinnest layer gives lesser yields and more intense, full bodied wines, whereas the thicker layer allows more fruitiness and freshness.
The vineyard is managed in sustainable viticulture since 1999, and completely organically since 2017
