The cab franc of my dreams. Dominique is fourth generation, when he took over in 1990, the 13 hectares were immediately converted to organic in the heart of Saumur Champigny. Transparent expression of the magic that can happen when well tended to vines grow in clay and limestone soils over tuffeau. Racy with abundant red fruit, no sign of green bell pepper - Hallelujah!
from the importer:
"Le Petit Saint Vincent comes from Dominique Joseph's younges Cabernet Franc vines just outside the village of Varrains. The soils are sandy. It is vinified and aged entirely in cement. The combination of the aging and it being Cabernet Franc from sandy soils makes it the most immediately approachable bottling from Dominique."
