Paul & Fredrik Filliatreau

The Filliatreaus are renowned for having modernised winemaking in the Saumur and Saumur Champigny regions, producing vibrant wines with excellent fruit characteristics. Their wines are extremely popular on the Paris restaurant market and increasingly well known around the world. Yapp Brothers have been importing Filliatreau wines since 1976. 

“I love this property and all of its wines. Cabernet Franc, from warmer vintages in the Loire, can rival the great red wines of France, but they never trouble the credit card. Perhaps a little unfortunate for the Domaines here, but a wondrous jackpot for those of us who know this secret. How many other regions in the world retail their greatest labels for less than twenty quid? Buy all you can and only tell people you love about the stellar wines at Filliatreau. ”
