$75.00 excl. GST
Who – Domaine des Closiers
Where – Loire Valley, France
What – Cabernet Franc
Domaine des Closiers is one of the most exciting estates to emerge from the Loire in recent years. This historic estate in Saumur-Champigny was purchased in 2018 by Anatole de la Brosse, a wine-loving and successful management consultant, who actually started his career studying enology. The approach is one of pure quality first; to help dive into the nuances of the terroir he has engaged Michel Chevré (Clos de l’Ecotard) to consult on bio-conversion, and Nady Foucault (ex-Clos Rougeard) to advise on winemaking. The wine style is one of depth and complexity, as opposed to ‘simple’ examples of Cabernet Franc.
Tank aged for around 8 months before being bottled – however this is a far cry from most simple examples of Saumur Champigny.
Pure, expressive, a stunning example beyond the greenness often seen of Cabernet Franc.
