      Tasting Notes
      Chateau du Hureau Saumur-Champigny Tuffe 2015 75cl

      This Cabernet Franc based Loire wine is crafted from fifteen different batches of old and young vines grown on the distinctive free-draining tuffeau soils of the Loire. Scents of wild flowers and thyme meld with sweet mulberry fruit to produce a flavoursome palate and a lingering finish. Deeply coloured yet almost without tannin this is a soft sumptuous and thoroughly enjoyable wine.

      From a serious basis of really ripe Cabernet Franc grapes, this is a really serious wine… But which doesn't take itself too seriously! Its delightful lack of pretention that will please one and all!

      "Deep cherry red. Ripe, spicy cherry fruit. Then that gorgeous dry texture with a graphite freshness and very long finish. Delicious on its own but would also be great with food. 16.5 Points." (Julia Harding, Jancis Robinson Purple Pages, Jan 2016)

      "Classic Cabernet Franc with lovely refreshing red and blackcurrant fruits on the nose and palate."
      (John Wilson, The Irish Times, July 2017)
