Welcome to the Château de Targé !
Here, you will learn everything about our wines - and especially the famous Saumur-Champignys - about their terroir, their history and their medals. You will have the possibility to order wine, and learn about our distributors where you can find them.
Finally, you can take a look on our "gîte de charme" for two, for a day or a week.
I wish you a pleasant visit,
Sept 2014 : Hachette Guide 2015
Usually Targé is quoted for its Red or White, but this time it is for its Brut Blanc, Chenin Blanc two-thirds and one-third Cabernet Franc discreetly aged in barrels and lattes at least 2 years ... "Rather specialist in reds, Edouard Pisani signs here a very elegant Saumur Brut, with aromas of green apple and white flowers (jasmine, lilac). the effervescence is present in the mouth. the balance is pleasant, despite a sensitive dosage. One star (very successful wine)
