View from the Cellar
The 2019 Saumur-Champigny “les Lizières” from Clotilde Legrand is a beautiful wine. The bouquet is deep, precise and complex, jumping from the glass in a mix of cassis, sweet dark berries, a touch of menthol, cigar wrapper, dark soil tones, tree bark and plenty of smokiness. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, complex and shows off outstanding mid-palate depth, with ripe tannins, fine focus and a long, balanced and very promising finish. This is first class Saumur-Champigny in the making!
