Pure Cabernet Franc, unoaked. We always enjoy this wine for its honest, slatey character (weirdly enough it’s grown on greyish shale), that mineral expression of Loire Cabernet Franc, but this vintage it seems to have an extra dollop of juicy black fruit. Deeply hued, offering a primary fruit perfume of cherries and plums, it’s supple, and surprisingly ripe and fleshy for the price. Lightly chill and bring on some cold cuts and charcuterie. Brilliant at this price. Now-2024
