2015 Saumur Champigny “Clos de l'Echelier”

Domaine des Roches Neuves

2015 Saumur Champigny “Clos de l'Echelier” Domaine des Roches Neuves - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $60.00

A thoroughbred of a Cabernet, the Échelier—named after a walled-in clos of terraces that is “ladder”-like—is Burgundian in style. Fine, with bright acid, sleek silkiness, and great length, it is the most elegant of all of Thierry’s red wines. Drink it and age it as you would a fine Pinot Noir from La Bourgogne. –Dixon Brooke
