Antoine Sanzay Saumur Champigny 2018


In stock
Loire, France


After establishing himself as one of the most exciting Cabernet Franc producers over the last 20 years, Antoine Sanzay's releases are some of the most well-priced and sought-after wines in the Saumur region. Organic, varietal, and approachable in youth.

Perhaps it is the winemaking that most clearly distinguishes Antoine from other producers in his appellations. He works very close to nature in the cellar adding no yeast, no temperature control, and sulphur at a minimum just before bottling, like many in the Loire. However, it is his fermentation philosophies that really set him apart. Antoine is inspired by great burgundies, more than any other wine in France.

Tasting Profile

Cabernet Franc. Deep ruby in the glass, aromas of black cherry, cranberry, damp violets, tobacco, and a hint of black pepper. Medium-bodied, fresh, and full of acid-driven energy. Fine tannins and a sweet floral burst to finish.
