Le Petit Saint Vincent Saumur Champigny 'Les Poyeux' 2014
Fourth generation winemaker Dominique Joseph farms the family’s 13 hectares of vines as naturally as possible, eliminating the use of herbicides and pesticides. Fruit for ‘Les Poyeux’ hails from a small, .85 hectare parcel situated on organically farmed, sandy soils. Macerated for 3-4 weeks, followed by one year of aging in used barrels. Soil-driven red fruit with peppery earth spice notes dominate the palate; serve slightly chilled.
