    Saumur Champigny 2005
    Les Poyeux, Clos Rougeard
    Bottle (10)

    "The 2005 Saumur-Champigny Les Poyeux – in half new and half one-wine barriques – offers an intense, high-toned nose of ripe blackberry and machine oil. Deep, rich and expansive on the palate, featuring stock-pot meatiness, ripe blackberry fruit, alluring, Chambertin-like rose petal inner-mouth florality, and subtly salty minerality, this should be worthy of a decade or more of bottle age. The mixture in the empty glass of rose, blackberry, black cherry, and elusive carnal and mineral nuances worthy of a great Pinot should alone prove worthy of what is bound to seem by local standards a hefty price." (91-92 pts. David Schildknecht, Wine Advocate #172, Aug. 2007)
