Fabien Duveau 2016 Saumur-Champigny "Origine"

Vinified and aged in cement, the Saumur-Champigny “Origine” is a gorgeous, fresh, juicy wine that brings the drinker back, glass after glass. Grown in clay and limestone soils, the wine captures the classic herbaceous and aromatic quality of cabernet franc, leading to bright red fruits and ripe, juicy tannins. This is a proper modern bistro wine that really over-delivers for the price point.
