LANGLOIS-CHATEAU - Chateau De Varrains 2003, Saumur Champigny
This wine comes from a walled vineyard that harbours the magnificent Chateau de Varrains in the heart of the Saumur Champigny appellation.
The wine is made from the Cabernet Franc grape variety. After a long maceration period to extract colour and tannins from the grape skins, the wine then matured in large oak casks for a period of 1 year in the Chateau's magnificent tufa cellars.
The dark ruby colour beautifully reflects the characteristics typical of its terroir.
This is a wine of red fruit aromas and a slightly wood bouquet with elegance and balance on the palate.
