This is a very appealing but also undeniably solar style, with crushed red cherry fruits to the fore, ripe and sweet, fresh and peppered. The palate brims with fruit, with a plush style which reflects the character of the vintage, yet it also remains delightfully pure, tense and defined. Through the middle it develops a polished and succulent style, energetic and gourmand, with bright cherry stone, herbs and bay. It culminates in a tense, bright, cool and long finish. The finest example of Saumur-Champigny.
