2019 Domaine Antoine Sanzay 'La Paterne' Cabernet Franc

  • 100% Cabernet Franc
  • Appellation Saumur-Champigny (Rouge)
  • This wine was previously called Cuvée Domaine (renamed to avoid confusion as all his wines are from his domaine!)
  • Fruit is sourced from From Antoine’s three vineyards across Varrains, Chacé and St Cyr-en-Bourg, which total 4 hectares
  • Vines were mostly planted in 1975, for the most part on limestone, clay and sand on limestone bedrock.
  • Certified organic
  • Hand harvested into crates and then sorted. The fruit was destemmed, wild fermented in concrete tanks for 25 days, then pressed into 60% concrete tanks, 40% aged French oak barriques for a total of 9 months
  • Unfiltered, unfined (vegan)
  • 25mg/L SO2 added at bottling
  • Tasting notes: Pure class! Classic Saumur Cabernet Franc. Black berries, super rich, velvet tannins, dense, spices, cacao, inky, dark. 

The 2019 vintage was around 30-40% down in yield than 2018 - we received just 20 cases of this wine.
