Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Francis a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon.

A cross of it with Sauvignon Blanc resulted in Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet Franc tends to be softer and has less tannins than Cabernet Sauvignon, although the two can be difficult to distinguish. Many of the red wines of the Loire are primarily Cabernet Franc.

Chateau Piconat, Bordeaux, 2016

Appealing red fruit, fresh and balanced, with savoury touches. Smooth, with some body; and finishes with a flourish. Very successful and complete blend of 80% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Now-2022

2016, hot dry and sunny, was again a wonderful vintage for generic Bordeaux Rouge - even in less auspicious sites and at generous yields the grapes ripened perfectly. So this bottle from vines near Soussac in Entre-dux-Mers, doesn't just offer a pretty (pinkish) traditional label but a very decent ripe drop of claret in this lovely Bordeaux vintage. It won a gold medal in the 2017 Concours des Grands Vins de France in Macon in 2017 too -one of the more serious French wine competitions.

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
