Deeply pigmented, garnet red colour with some notes of extract and naturally occurring sediment hinting at minimal intervention winemaking. Ripe plum, wet wool, savoury, underbrush notes. The palate is medium to full bodied, juicy and fresh with good density. The tannins are present grainy without astringency. The texture is chalky and the finish is long. This Cabernet Franc really shines when paired with dishes containing fresh herbs like tarragon, fennel and rosemary; roasted chicken, lamb chops or herby grain salads are a few suggestions.
Organic Cabernet Franc from the AOC Saumur Puy Notre Dame. The grapes grow on Turonian clay-limestone and are hand harvested. Wild fermentation with 6 week maceration and no additions during fermentation. The wines ages for 12 months in French oak barrels of 300 liters, aged 10 to 15 years, then 4 months in mass in concrete vats.
