Category defining Cabernet Franc here from who in my mind makes the top CF ￼in the Loire for the $. Not cheap but it ain't Rougeard $ and per dollar better. Burgundian in so many ways but true to the CF grape...texturallly as fine as silk, fresh, excellent length. — 4 months ago
Vibrant, juicy, so fresh, alive!
Green apples, green grass, a hint of green apricot, some lemongrass. Highly enticing. Not flint like Sancerre, no exotic canned fruit like NZ. Fresh, green, grassy.
On the palate this has a round, slightly creamy mouthfeel but remains focused, light, appley juicy, vibrant. A slightly herby, salty bitter edge adds an interesting edge and a bit of nice complexity.
Closer to a Chenin Blanc (think Guiberteau) than a typical SB.
Slightly cloudy, incredibly drinkable.
This is a delightful discovery! — a month ago
