Saumur Blanc "Les Cormiers" 2013 - Château de Villeneuve

This wine is out of stock

£ 17.00 tax incl.

What a great wine! Les Cormiers was by far our favourite when we blind tasted them and we had a real crush here. This Cuvée of Chenin Blanc is full of flavours, with roundness and minerality, and a long finish that calls for more. It already drinks very well and could easily last for several years if you are brave enough to wait for it - Your Sommelier might not be able to wait that long!
