"Cabernet Franc Par Excellence" VDF Languedoc-Roussillon, France
We will start with a confusing statement, this is a Cabernet Franc for those who usually dont like a Cabernet Franc. The reason is that it has none of the green/vegetable notes that you get from traditional expressions in the Loire. This 2016 vintage spent 30 months in used oak barrels, the result is mouth watering aromas of wild strawberries continuing to a bold and powerful palate that is masterfully balanced on a luxurious, velvety material. It is concentrated without being heavy; fully melted tannins and a long fruity finish with a touch of spice. An absolute delight.
