2016 Château de Fosse-Seche Saumur Arcane - France, Loire Valley, Anjou-Saumur, Saumur (1/2/2020)
-- popped and poured --
-- tasted non-blind over a couple hours --

NOSE: rich fruit; hint of fennel bulb.

BODY: rich, maize color; medium bodied.

TASTE: a bit watery/tight --- I was expecting a lot more, based on the Nose --- maybe this just needs air?; medium acidity; didn't unfurl over the course of a couple hours; lacks tension/energy. Solid-but-uninspiring, although perhaps this just needs time. Gut impression score: mid 80s.
