The big brother to the basic Saumur Rouge made with vines over 30 years old, hand selected and harvested from 4 small vineyards. Aged in 500 litre oak barrels for 8 months the style is richer and more complex. Beautiful intense dark ruby colour with crimson highlights. Expressive nose with refined oak and a mix of ripe fruit, spices and a clutch of toasted notes.
Rich, concentrated palate with closely-integrated, silky tannins. It is showing everything you would expect from a great wine, drinking well now but will continue to age for some years to come.
French red wine from Loire Valley France, with Cabernet Franc.

Established in 1912 by Edouard Langlois and his young wife Jeanne Chateau, the Domaine was taken over by Champagne Bollinger in 1973 in whose hands it still remains.
