Serious cabernet franc from Saint Cyr en Bourg in Saumur Champigny (Loire Valley). Arnaud Lambert is "one of the most talented winemakers in the Loire" Bettane & Dessauve - Top 100 producers of France 2019.
"From vines averaging 35 years old facing east on red silty clay soil over limestone bedrock. 100% destemmed and fermented with indigenous yeast in tank after separating free run and press juices with no SO2 for ageing and just 1 mg SO2 at bottling after 12 months ageing in older barrels before blending in tank and ageing for another 6 months. Arnaud feels with this vintage he has understood the site to get the best expression and this shows very fine with beautiful pure aromas. Very fine and pure on the palate with a big step up in expression and complexity this shows real finesse of tannins and structure and is a very beautiful expression of variety and site. A serious and stunning Saumur rouge." Vintage and Vine.
