Antoine Sanzay, Les Poyeux 2019 Saumur-Champigny

17.5

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. 
Deep and resonant on the nose with an almost mint and cassis nuance. Fresh, constructed and with depth, the tannins minerally and fine. Very long finish. Loads of energy and drive. (JL)
