Antoine Sanzay, Les Poyeux 2017 Saumur-Champigny

17

Certified organic. From eight plots in Les Poyeux lieu-dit. Clay-limestone soils (but no windblown sand as in the Clos Rougeard version). Fruit destemmed. Aged 18 months in foudres. 
A touch of reduction but enormous depth of fruit. Some Syrah-like pepper and spice adds complexity. Abundant tannins but very, very fine. Really linear and focused with a chalky sensation through and through. Clean, palate-cleansing finish. (JL)
