Franz Saumon is not from winemaking stock. Indeed, he enjoyed a successful career in forestry management in Canada before returning home in the mid-90's to set up his estate at Huisseau in the Montlouis region of the Loire between Tours and Orleans. The vineyards are situated mainly at the foot of the famed Huisseau Plateau where all the best local names are located but Frantz also has holdings in Chapitre and Lussault-sur-Loire. The vines are planted on soils of sandy clay, limestone and flint and everything is carried out strictly according to organic principles. The grapes are manually harvested, only indigenous yeasts are used and the use of sulphur is very restricted.

In 2021 Frantz lost 80% of his production, but he was lucky to be able to purchase organic fruit from an old friend in Sûd Ouest. 100% Colombard grown on Argilo calcaire soils. Direct slow press before fermentation, aged in stainless steel tanks.
