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 45 years old planted in red silty clay soil over limestone base with a warmer west facing exposition. 100% destemmed and fermented with partial whole berries 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 8 months in tank. Very fleshy and perfumed yet fine. Gives immediate pleasure with ripe expressive red fruits showing very good depth and complexity. Pure pleasure and a joy to drink young." Vintage and Vine.
