BAGATELLE 2019
Designation

AOC SAUMUR

Tasting comment

Red carmine color , fresh raspberry and blackberry perfumes. The attack on the palate is crisp and full of freshness. The tannins are soft , little present and silky. Persistence is short.
This is THE cuvee of the Manoir de la Tete Rouge and this is what one must expect from a Saumur, delicate and simple.
