Château du Hureau Saumur-Champigny Tuffe 2017
This Cabernet Franc based Loire wine is crafted from fifteen different batches of old and young vines grown on the distinctive free-draining tuffeau soils of the Loire. Scents of wild flowers and thyme meld with sweet mulberry fruit to produce a flavoursome palate and a lingering finish. Deeply coloured yet with deft tannin, this is a soft sumptuous and thoroughly enjoyable wine.
From a serious basis of really ripe Cabernet Franc grapes, this is a really serious wine… But which doesn't take itself too seriously! Its delightful lack of pretention that will please one and all!
Try it lightly chilled with charcuterie, sausasges and hearty fish dishes.
