    Saumur Champigny 2002
    Le Bourg, Clos Rougeard
    ocb
    Bottle (12)

    THE CLOS ROUGEARD COLLECTION It is always a treat to have a consignment of the ultra-rare and highly sought-after, Clos Rougeard. It’s even more remarkable when it’s over 100 bottles including original cases, strictly from the era of the late, Charly Foucault and consigned from the Tuffeau limestone cellar of his close friend and Chateau-dwelling neighbor in the Loire Valley. We are downright ecstatic to offer, surely the largest consignment ever of Clos Rougeard in the United States. Every single lot here is a highlight. These are some of the finest wines ever made in France from a source beyond reproach. Bid as if you’ll never see a collection like this again--because likely you will not.

    "The Foucaults’ 2002 Saumur-Champigny Le Bourg displays a complex aromatic melange of machine, blackberry, smoked meat, resinous herbs, toasted nuts, sauteed mushrooms, flowers, and sweat. Sleek in texture, enormously rich and expansive in the mouth, yet retaining an invigorating core of acidity, it spreads salt and wet stone mineral traces, bitter black fruits and pungent herbs in the wake of its long, penetrating, juicy finish." (92 pts. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate #172, Aug. 2007.
