AOP Saumur Champigny

Domaine de Nerleux 2016

€410 Bottle of 10cl

This Saumur Champigny has a beautiful garnet color and an intensely aromatic nose. Typical Cabernet Franc blackcurrant aromas mingle with attractive floral and vegetal notes. The mouthfeel is supple with fruity flavors and good fullness while herbaceous notes bring a pleasant freshness to the wine. Light in tannins, this is a supple red with a long, fruity finish.
