AOP Saumur Champigny

Domaine de Nerleux 2017

€490 Flacon de 10cl

This wine boasting a deep cherry red colour with a fuchsia rim has the typically intense blackcurrant notes of Cabernet Franc, along with a hint of fern. On the palate, it is supple bodied with fruity blackcurrant flavours and very nice freshness. This is a well-structured Saumur-Champigny with very subtle tannins and a peppery finish for beautiful harmony overall.
