Clos Rougeard, Saumur-Champigny, Les Poyeux 2015
94 points Decanter
Another 2015 with a floral scent of violets and roses along with a blood-like iron element, on a foundation of brisk blackcurrant fruit. The tell-tale minty top-note comes to the fore after aeration, and the juicy palate is both fleshy and fresh, sustained by racy tannins. It has a vibrant finish with a salty tang.
93 points Vinous
Intense and full of depth. Dark ruby. Meaty, bloody nose, with spicy, green herb, and black pepper. Rich and dark on the palate with plum, black cherry, and licorice flavors. Very fine, spicy tannins throughout. Lean, lithe and dark on the finish with a note of espresso.
