Saumur Champigny

Saumur Champigny

This is what I want from a Saumur Champigny (A Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley in France): high toned fresh red,  delicate tannins, light body, and it’s inexpensive.  This is a classic cafe wine , at least in Paris.  Have a glass with a simple meal at home.

Perfect for it’s price point.

Here’s a few quotes about this wine:

Nez ouvert, friand, mêlant fruits rouges (liqueur de cassis), fruits noirs (cerise noire) et de fines notes réglissées

Sorry, here’s the translation:

Open nose, delicious, combining red fruits (blackcurrant liqueur), black fruits (black cherry) and fine notes of liquorice.

And Another:

Beautiful ruby-red with purplish highlights. Open, attractive nose of red fruit (blackcurrant, redcurrant) with subtle overtones of mint and red sweet pepper. Well-structured, warm and powerful on the palate with delicious fruit flavors and great balance.
