Arnaud Lambert Saumur Breze Clos Mazurique 2020 Loire Cabernet Franc
Pretty colour in the glass lolly raspberry red. On the nose it kind of smells like lolly raspberries too (in a good way). On the palate really juicy with sweet berries coming through, great soft tannin structure.
Interesting wine – a lot more sweet fruit than the 2019. Honestly though so much to like. Needs air and goat’s cheese (goat’s cheese is native to the region – goes so well with all the local varieties from Cabernet Franc to Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc).
Will give it a minute and eat some cheese.
Man it’s an immensely likable wine.
Important wine for people to try – LOVE it!
After 30 mins of air it’s honestly freaking stunning.
So great to experience a Cabernet Franc in the Loire style (as compared with the Bordeaux blends) really ripe, fruity and generous. Been so long since I’ve had Loire Cab Franc like this. A real treat!
As the air gets in it really becomes something special – bigger, brighter – special wine. Decant!
