Ch du Hureau, Lisagathe 2005 Saumur-Champigny

17

Cabernet Franc planted on sandy clay over limestone soils just above the tuffeau-hewn cellar. Aged in tank (no oak).
Youthful garnet hue. Initially some reduction then opens to cassis and morello-cherry notes. Palate still rich, full and round with a chalky minerality to the tannins. Plenty of matière but vitality as well. Still going places. (JL)
