Clos Rougeard Le Bourg Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2005

Ron Siegel

Another great Le Bourg found on a wine list. Unfortunately their last btl. Dark cherry, earth, tobacco, mineral, dried herbs, olive & cigar ash are some of the notes. Always interesting & complex. This is a great vintage for Clos Rougeard. Full bodied & drinking very young. Would benefit with a 2-3 hr decant.

Favourite Rougeard of the night. Big, powerful, yet classy. Nose was similar to aged Bordeaux with spiciness, roasted dark fruits and leather. On the palate this had silky tannins, and savoury notes.

So sad. Something is seriously wrong with this bottle. I've had this before, and was expecting to see Jesus, or at least a disciple. Some combination of VA and Brett.

No wonder Rougeard is so hard to find. I see where it's all going.
