2011 Le Prince Saumur Champigny Red, Domaine de Rochville

This relatively new Saumur-Champigny estate is producing some of the appellations most exciting wines, and Le Prince is one of the best. It represents a single tank sourced from older vines in the parcel of Les Hautes Varennes. Older vines equal more intense wine, and that's exactly what you get here, and as there is no oak ageing in this wine everything you taste is Cabernet Franc. It's packed full of vibrant cherry and raspberry flavour with a lovely combination of earth and currant leaf in the background. A textbook Loire Cabernet Franc.
