A very impressive chateau just outside Saumur. Very good reds with AC Saumur Champigny and whites with AC Saumur. Has belonged to the same family since the 17th century and is now managed by Edouard Pisani Ferry. Look especially for the prestige wine Cuvée Ferry. If you buy directly from the property the Saumur-Champigny Targé 2003 is (was, probably sold out by now) 6.75€ and Cuvée Ferry 2000 is 10.50€. The white Saumur Blanc Les Fresnettes 2003 is 11.50€. Take a look at their web site: www.chateaudetarge.fr. They have a fun animated description of the vinification: go to “soil, wine, and cellar” and click Next.
