Saumur-Champigny La Chaintree by Rene-Noel Legrand 2004

Reward points With this product, you earn 28 loyalty point(s). 28 points = $0.56. Find more about this!

Delivery Time : 1-4 business days

A selection of the best plots from 35 to 50-year-old vines, La Chaintree is aged 24 months in neutral 500L oak barrels. This is a very pure expression of cabernet franc, showing chocolate, beautiful minerality and some riper herbal notes (nothing green here). Great structure and the balance here is excellent, which makes for a wine which is both intense, but light at the same time. The tannins are present, but ripe and well-coated. This is drinking beautifully now at 13 year-old but can still age for many more. 

18/20 points - Cuisine et vins de France, Sept/Oct 2006

Highly recommended - Bettane & Desseauve 2008
