2019 Arnaud Lambert “Terres Rouges” Saumur Champigny CABERNET FRANC
This is what the Loire Valley is renowned for when it comes to red wines: a 100% Cabernet Franc, earthy and racy. The very talented winemaker Arnaud Lambert, after collaborating with his father for 15+ years, has taken over the vineyard and is making something truly special with it. He has always had a single objective: making the truest wine that great Loire Valley terroir can yield. He began by converting his vineyards to organic viticulture. Now, he is converting them again to biodynamic viticulture. He has always resisted interfering with the vinification and maturing of wines in his cellar. You can taste the care of Arnaud’s vineyard and cellar practices in the quality of his wines. They are bright works of art, short on pretension, long on purity.
