Producer: Domaine Bruno Dubois
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
From the Winery:
"A wine of enjoyment -- classic Saumur-Champigny from an exceptional vintage. A delicately sweet aroma that invites you in and makes you feel welcome. Beautiful and balanced on the palate with crisp red fruits, earth and a touch of herbs. As always this cuvee from Bruno is 100% Cabernet Franc that highlights its fruit and freshness thanks to being raised entirely in cement vat. The tannins are more prominent than those on the ’13, suggesting that this wine may have a slightly longer trajectory in the 4-5 year range depending on how you like your wine. Certified organic, worked biodynamically, never fined, never filtered, and just a touch of sulfur. I like it as an aperitif wine given its less imposing frame. It’s a great opener with paté, charcuterie, and cheese. But don’t be afraid to take it to the lunch or dinner table with roast chicken, burgers or pork. The value and versatility of this wine is untouchable!"
