This Cabernet Franc wine comes from 30- to 40-year-old vines grown on the appellation’s Turonian clay/chalk plateau. 60% of the juice is aged in tank, with 40% in 400 litre wooden casks called tonnes.
Ripeness, perfume, and freshness are the hallmarks here. This is very easy to like. The warmth of the vintage brings the fruit to the fore and not a hint of green or stalkiness in sight. Plug and play all the way.
