Tasting Notes

Surprisingly serious for a sub-$15 bottle of Cabernet Franc. Concentrated aromas of black and red fruits with dried herbs and hints of tobacco spice. Good earthiness but on the more on the subdued side and nice tannin on the finish. An overachieving entry level wine.

    2015 Domaine des Ruettes Saumur-Champigny Rouge comes from 30 year old vines grown on clay, flint and calcareous tufa. Aged 12 months in French oak barrels (of which 25% new) it’s more robust, structured, has firm tannins and bright acidity, with earthy components. Flint soil gives it a touch of smoky notes. It’s full-bodied and rich in plum and black cassis with spicy finish. It can age nicely for another 5-7 years.
