Collier "La Ripaille" Saumur Rouge 2017
We have offered a couple of different wines from Domaine de Collier and they have both been the estate's amazing Chenin Blanc. This time we get the privilege of offering you one of his amazing reds. La Ripaille is made with Cabernet Franc from vines that range from 30 to 80 years of age. The only other red Antoine produces is "Charpentrie" from 100+ aged vines. The wines are made completely organic, and for added protection, there is a 12th-century wall that separates his vines from the neighbors - so no chemicals can reach his vines. This wine is like Burgundy, but Cabernet Franc. Layers, upon layers of fruit, herbs, and spice join together in this wine to make for a beautiful bottle. You want a wine for your spring vegetable dishes with added meat - this is what you need!
