91,5 DOMAINE de SAINt JUST - Clos Moleton
Saumur Champigny 2009
AL - Very dark, ruby/purple; modern nose with
some new oak, spices, dark chocolate and blackcurrant; the palate is showing rich structure, dense,
dark fruit, plum, blackcurrant, fine but a high level
of tannin, long, rich and dense finish, very good, but
still young - drink from 2014. 92
MdM - Dark, purple red with violet hue and almost
black centre. Opulent nose with aromas reminiscent of roasted fragrances, vanilla, caramel,
blackberries, blackcurrants and a hint violets in the
background. On the palate excellent balance and
good length with well integrated tannins and a hint
of acidity. 91

89 DOMAINE de SAINT JUSt - Coulée de Saint Cyr
White Saumur 2008
AL - Lightly golden colour; rich
nose of honey, tropical fruits, and
finely integrated oak; bone dry and
fresh palate, some evolution, some
creamy and lactic notes, vibrant
citrus fruit, good bite and length. 88
MdM - Bright, yellow with golden
hue. Opulent nose with aromas reminiscent of candied lemon, vanilla
and quinces jam. In the background
discreet floral notes reminiscent
of linden blossoms. On the palate
creamy texture, excellent balance
and good length. 90
 

86,5 CHATEAU de BREZE- Clos David
