2020 Domaine des Sanzay Rosé Saumur

This is a pressed wine, one hundred percent Cabernet Franc, organically grown on forty-year-old vines. The fruit is pressed, fermented with ambient yeasts in temperature controlled stainless tanks, and bottled in March. Brilliant salmon-pink with yellow glints, the wine is fragrant of strawberries, cantaloupe, mint, peach, and (almost?) mango. The flavors continue the theme: it feels rounded and textural, ripe and mouth-filling. The finish lingers like apricot nectar.

It sounds like too much but it’s not. It’s a terrific wine for picnics, salads, salmon, oily fish, and aïoli.
