2022: No score yet but we loved the last 2 vintages and 2022 is a great vintage in the region
2022 should be similar to the 2020 for comparison:
2020: 92 pts Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2020 Saumur Champigny Les Closiers comes from Cabernet Franc plots cultivated on the limestone hillsides of Parnay. Vinified and matured in stainless steel vats, the Closiers reveals an intense but pure and refreshing bouquet of perfectly ripe red and dark fruits such as elderberries, blackcurrant, blueberries and blackberries as well as mulberries. Generous and gentle on the palate, this is a fruit-intense, very charming and juicy, wonderfully floral and delicate red with perfect ripeness but the lightness and finesse of a Saumur Champigny. The finish is pure and fleshy and reveals fine and stimulating tannins. It's impossible not to love this 2020 that was macerated for a month and then aged in vats for approximately 10 months. Nothing added here apart from small quantities of sulfur dioxide. 13% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in March 2022.
Soils: A mix of limestone-rich clays.
Winemaking: Allowed a cold maceration period before fermentations commence, and total macerations can exceed a month. Extractions are very gentle, with no punchdown and only a short pumpover every 1-2 days. After a fermentation/maceration, the wine is aged in stainless tanks for an additional 8-10 months before bottling.
