Clos Rougeard (Bernard et Charly Foucault), Saumur-Champigny Le Clos 2005

Beaune Imports, Berkeley CA.

Oxblood.  The analog wine experience and the hours move slow with the Foucault brothers.  Wind blows low, rivers run high; blackberry juice and assam tea, seamless in the balance of fruit and mineral elements.  The finish is at once autumnal and transportive.  My money may be gone but my mind is at ease.  RIP Charly.   Now – 2020+.
