2016 La Source du Ruault Saumur-Champigny Rouge

SKU #1424123

I first met vigneron Jean-Noël Millon while attending an organic wine fair in the South of France. The wines were impressive, so we arranged to meet on my trip through the Loire a couple of months later. A visit to the winery led to a trip through the ancient cellar, which had been carved from the chalky stone below (known as tuffeau) two centuries before. As we progressed from chamber to chamber, it began to feel more like a spelunking expedition. Ancient coins were pressed into the walls by past workers, the old wine press was still intact, even the old pulley system for transporting barrels and equipment to the surface was evident, though replaced by a slightly more modern conveyance.

Really delightful Cabernet Franc, from Saumur, medium bodied, and very floral, with an intense nose of crushed rocks, violets and little red fruits. I would suggest serving it a bit chilled. Perfect with Indian food.
