Red wine - 75cl bottle - AOC Saumur-Champigny
Variety : 100 % Cabernet-Franc
Intense ruby color, with a bright and luminous robe offering violet-blue and cherry nuances.
Timid, distinguished, and still somewhat reserved, the first nose gives a glimpse of truly wonderful promises ahead.
After airing, the wine progressively delivers its secrets and origins. The second nose expresses fruit (black currant, blueberry, cherry, blackberry, raspberry), and reveals hints of flowers (iris , violet, peony), plants (cedar, mint), and spices (pepper, clove, cinnamon).
A complex wine expressing the full Cabernet Franc fruit.
The attack is straightforward. Stewed fruitiness brings thickness. Of pleasant acidity, aromas of eucalyptus and bergamot can be noted. The overall aspect yields a supple, fine, and elegant wine with a long finish.
Lamb tagine with prunes and almonds.
Seven-hour lamb parmentier or venison with prunes.
Chalky subsoil, an alliance of sandy-clay terrain rich in limestone.
