Tasting notes for the Saumur-Champigny 2018 - Antoine Sanzay

  • EYE: Deep and shiny ruby red color with slight purple reflections.
  • NOSE: The Saumur-Champigny 2018 offers a complex aromatic bouquet. Aromas of red fruits such as cherry, raspberry, and red currant, accompanied by herbal, floral, and spicy notes. Some Saumur-Champigny wines may also have characteristic violet notes.
  • MOUTH: Light to medium-bodied on the palate, with fine and well-integrated tannins. The fruity flavors unfold with liveliness, offering a beautiful expression of red fruits, along with notes of pepper, licorice, and spices. The freshness and acidity characteristic of the Cabernet Franc grape variety bring a lively touch to the wine. The finish is elegant and persistent, leaving a refreshing sensation.

 

In short: This Saumur-Champigny 2018 from Antoine Sanzay is a high-quality red wine that represents the appellation well. It can be experienced right away, but it also has aging potential for those who prefer more developed wines.

100% organic winemaking in Varrains

 

Since 1999, Antoine Sanzay has taken care of the family vineyard he's inherited from his grandparents, in the village of Varrains (Loire Valley, western France). With tireless passion, he cultivates the soil of his 11 hectares of Saumur and Saumur-Champigny, like six generations of vintners before him. His wines, which he started producing at the estate in 2002, are purely organic.

Antoine has a deep respect for the vineyard, which you can almost taste when you open one of his bottles. He often jokes about using antiquated, pre-war methods, but one must admit they clearly bear fruits! It is a real labor of love for him and it doesn't stop in the vineyard: Antoine uses natural yeasts in the wine making process, works with the lees, values low yields...

Former rising star in the Saumur community, Antoine has now become a well-respected wine maker. He's especially known for his 4 hectares of "Poyeux", a terroir very close to the famous Clos Rougeard, formerly owned by the Foucault Brothers (who were organic wine precursors). Because of that, Antoine is also often seen as one of their spiritual successors.
