Frantz Saumon established his Domaine in Montlouis-sur-Loire in 2002, after a few stints as a forester here (in France) and there (in Canada), and a stage with Christian Chaussard of Domaine le Briseau, an influential voice in the “vin naturel” world who passed away not long ago.

He has always practised organic/biodynamic agriculture and raises his wines in a variety of fibreglass and stainless steel tanks as well as wood vessels of different sizes. All wines are fermented naturally here, to the extent that there’s not even method Champenoise going on in this cellar -- all of his sparkling wines are pétillant naturel.

Frantz’s winemaking style seems to be about purity, always looking for clean wines and thriving for dryness. He also has a great talent for making pétillant naturel, some of the best ones in the region.
