Domaine de la Bonneliere Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny
£15.50

Deep purple and a perfectly ripe nose. The Cabernet Franc is fully expressed with spicy and peppery nuances, which complements the ripe black fruit. The roundness of the large and fleshy mouth, comes with long and persistent tannins.


Great with red meats - and served (very) lightly chilled makes a perfect accompaniment to barbecues.

Description

Details

Six metres under the earth, dug out of the soft local 'tuffeau' limestone, are the cellars of the Domaine de la Bonneliere. Here in the calm, cool, dark cellars the wine rests awaiting its moment of bottling. It is the end of a journey that Anthony and Cédric Bonneau start in their vineyards where in the heart of Saumur they cultivate their 40 hectares of land sandwiched between the Loire and its tributary the Thouet. Watched over by these rivers the brothers respect the land, appreciating its potential, and work with it to create some of the great wines of the Saumur.

Vineyards
All of the work in the vineyard is carried out with quality in mind but not at the expense of the environment which their take great to protect. Using “Méthode Raisonnée” to ensure only the very minimum of treatments are used. The rows between vines are grassed over to ensure protection of the soil and nutrients. Vines average 35 years old and the soil is clay-limestone over tuffeau.

Vinnification
Fermentation is in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats for 20 to 25 days, with some of the wine matured in oak barriques for 10 to 12 months in the domaine's rock-hewn cellars and the remainder in tank.

Tasting Notes
