An interesting tasting on Monday of some Saumur wines over dinner with four other guests. We tasted white Saumur classic chenin blanc. This we had with a simple melon and Serrano ham starter. It was ideal with the balance of the acidity of the wine and the slight acidity of the melon and saltiness of the ham. The next white was a Saumur aged in old burgndy barrels over 24 months allowing the tannins to develop into a structure of smooth deep yummy chenin exotic fruits. Its wonderful how dry chenin develops into almost a sweet wine but its just the acidity developing in a way that makes it feel sweeter. The reds were even better a classic Saumur cabernet franc with loads of dark fruit compote and layers of flavour. This we had with a chicken dish of lemon and herbs. Our final red with cheese Gouda, goats, Comté and French blue. This was a village appellation from Puy Notre Dame. loadsof minerality and salty undertones and scrumptious deep jam. Jam and cheese Karin’s favourite combo.
