This is a fantastic example of Saumur-Champigny, but that's no surprise. Thierry Germain's 20 hectares of vines produce some of the most pure, exciting wines in the Loire and, having recently awarded a coveted 3rd star by the Revue de Vins de France, word is getting out.
Perfect for the summer, think vibrant colour, silky tannins and lots of red cherry, redcurrant and raspberry fruit with floral, herby notes. Just a hint of Saumur's signature earthy character showing through too.
