Fabien Duveau 2015 Saumur-Champigny "Clos de la Côte"

With a layer of crushed, chalky topsoil atop pure argile-calcaire, the Clos de la Côte possesses one of the best terroirs in Saumur. Fabien’s parcel is adjacent to ancient vines owned by the iconic Thierry Germain. For those familiar with Germain’s wines, you will notice that there is a similar distinct elegance and lift to the this cuvée. Spontaneously fermented in cement and neutral barrel, followed by an additional year in old oak barrels, there is more concentration, intensity, and length than the Origine, without losing the focused freshness, purity of fruit and unbridled drinkability.
