Description: "From Les Poyeux, one of Saumur-Champigny’s top vineyard sites. Aged 12 months in older barrels. Dark ruby. Surprising freshness and purity here. The nose is fruity (cherry and plum), and that carries on to the palate. Attractive earthiness and smooth stone at midpalate, coddled at the edges by spice and licorice that glide to the long finish." - Vinous
Mainly comes from the Terroir called Les Poyeux. Mostly clay and sandy soils which give spicy wines, with very smooth tannins. The wine is aged in old barrels of 3 years or more and in wooden tanks.
