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.
