2022 Les Athletes du Vin Saumur-Champigny, Loire Valley, France

This intense and complex wine shows aromas of ripe red fruits, which carry over to a supple and round mouthfeel on the palate, marked by soft, approachable tannins.



100% Cabernet Franc. The soils are clay and limestone for the vineyards sourced for this wine. Fermentation and aging is in stainless steel.


Les Athlètes du Vin is a négociant project focused on typical, value-driven wines from the Loire Valley. The idea was conceived by a group of French winemakers called Vini Be Good, who work together to distribute their wines across France. The wines are vinified by various members of the Vini Be Good network using their own grapes or grapes purchased from friends and neighbors in the Loire. We are proud to present these wines made by their friends and family, as several of the cuvées are vinified by Gérard Vallée, brother of Mathieu Vallée from Château Yvonne.
The labels for Les Athlètes du Vin are drawings by French artist, illustrator, and cartoonist Michel Tolmer, who has been the unofficial lead artist of the French natural wine movement since the 1990s.
