Sanzay Saumur-Champigny 19

$19

Sanzay’s flagship Saumur-Champigny rouge comes from 40 year old vines, and continues to impress us every time we open a bottle. We tasted some alongside a collection of other Central Loire reds a few weeks ago, and found it easily the most pleasant and drinkable… and the cheapest.

The 2019 red is as good as the 2018 if not better, and still a remarkable bargain. Made using organic viticulture techniques, this is exactly what you want Loire Cab Franc to be: pure, joyful, unoaked, and refreshing. Clean, juicy fruit bursts from the glass on the nose — think wild cherries and graphite. The mouth is clean, fruit forward, inky, and intense, with a bold and vibrant attack and a quick clean finish.
