WHAT: Domaine de Saint Just Saumur Champigny 2007 (red) Rating: NNN
WHERE: Loire, France
WHY: Franc may toil in the shadow of his big brother Sauvignon but he can still do the Cabernet family proud, especially if he grew up in the Loire. Light and juicy, but with a compelling twist of herbs and licorice and just a bit of stick on the finish. Will do for the 'cue.
PRICE: 750 ml/$16.95
AVAILABILITY: At most Vintages outlets as of August 30 (product #81331)
