AOP Saumur Champigny

Domaine de Nerleux 2015

€410 Bottle of 10cl

This Saumur Champigny has a beautiful garnet robe with a raspberry rim and an intensely aromatic nose. The typical blackcurrant aromas of Cabernet Franc combine with pleasant moss and fern like notes and a touch of undergrowth. The palate is supple with real fruit-driven flavours. Raspberry and blackcurrant aromas are accompanied by herbaceous notes that give the wine a nice freshness and a long finish. Ideal with a rabbit terrine appetizer.
