    Description

    Saumur Champigny 2005
    Le Bourg, Clos Rougeard
    Bottle (2)


    "From a single hectare of ancient vines, the Foucaults’ 2005 Saumur-Champigny Le Bourg – from new barriques, a dozen of those from local oak dried for six years – displays roasted meat, black truffles, toasted walnut, cassis, and salt spray in the nose. Amazingly deep, meaty, and fruited with an almost bitter blackness of fruit skin intensity, this expansive, rich, doughy-textured red resonates with gushing juiciness, marrowy meatiness, explosive sweet florality, deep, piquant nuttiness, and aromatic wood notes. Like all Foucault wines, it will go straight to bottle by gravity and I don’t think much can go wrong at this point!" (94-95 pts. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate #172, Aug. 2007)
