Cep by Cep Thierry Germain Sélection Saumur-Champigny 2018
Thierry Germain, outstanding Loire winemaker, seems to reinvent the Cabernet Franc, working the grape in a surgical way. Stemming from his négoce, this wine is perfectly typical, unveiling scents of raspberry and undergrowth, a delicate vegetal note as well as a subtle note of graphite. Supple and delightful, this is a sure bet for lovers of this style of wine.
