TN: A memorable Saumur Blanc.

#1 Post by bob parsons alberta » August 22nd, 2020, 3:36 pm

2019 Cave de Saumur Saumur Blanc Les Pouches.

Well-recognised cooperative, $22 Cdn, 13% alc, SC. 100% CB, 45 yr old vines on a select parcel "Les Pouches".
Light straw color, no green. Nose is light with floral and citrus tones. Minerality shines through with apple and delicate white stonefruit.
Initial entry thought is dry, very good acidity and nice fruit balance. Great mid-palate with unripe apple and pear. The wine held up terrific over 3 days and is a "return-must-buy" for sure. A wonderful Chenin Blanc from Saumur.
