NEW! Saumur Rouge, Domaine Guiberteau, Loire, France 2017

34.00

A beautifully pure expression of Cabernet Franc from cult winemaker, Romain Guiberteau. Blackcurrant leaf, boysenberry and white pepper wash across the medium-bodied palate, where the tannins wait demurely only to clench slightly on the finish. This would be wonderful for drinking now with venison or duck, but will improve if you can wait a couple of years. 12.5% alc. Drink 2020-2027.


Press reviews:

Jancis Robinson on the previous vintage: “Wonderful tobacco and blackcurrant scent – absolutely textbook. So crunchy and vibrant, with no undue tannin. A modern classic.” 17 points

Bettane & Desseauve's Guide to The Wines of France: “The whites have obvious class and demonstrate all the potential for white-wine production in Saumur. The reds, not to be outdone, capture a unique expression of Cabernet Franc that surpasses all expectations. This is a departure for the real or supposed spirit of Saumur, with a quality of fruit that puts them alongside the greatest wine in France, be they from Burgundy, the Languedoc or Bordeaux."

EXTREMELY LIMITED.
