Certainly nothing out there like it. As others have noted, more akin to a light red. The red fruit here (cranberry, strawberry, sour cherry) yields to intense baked earth, herbal, dried rose petal and exotic spice, almost recalling amaro but without any sense of heaviness. Brilliant with cauliflower tikka masala — a month ago
Very funky on the nose. It seems to open in the glass but I left it overnight and still has funk from the bottle. I wonder if it got too warm in the store. Anyway it still has a great game, herbal, floral, and bright cherry fruit. Best with food. I didn’t like as much as last year though. — 10 days ago

Under the spell of this Loire wine. The bottle was finished without difficulty. Deep purple colour. Rashed nose of frank cabernet: raspberry, black cherries, purple, slate mineral touch. We feel the solar character of recent wines (climate change) giving concentration and intensity, where only a few years ago the acid green pepper style could sometimes hinder. A racy and gourmet Cabernet Franc de Loire to drink on youth. Perfect with asparagus pasta or goat cheese from the region of production.
Sous le charme de ce vin de Loire. La bouteille a été finie sans difficulté. Robe pourpre profonde. Nez racé du cabernet franc : framboise, cerises noires ,violette, touche minérale ardoise. On sent le caractère solaires des vins récents (changement climatique) donnant de concentration et intensité, là où il y a quelques années encore les style poivron vert acide pouvait parfois gêner. Un Cabernet Franc de Loire racé et gourmand à boire sur la jeunesse. Parfait avec une pasta aux asperges ou encore un fromage de chèvre de la région de production. — a month ago

Aroma of citrus and flint. Pours pale yellow. Upfront taste of minerals and green apples and citrus. Finishes with a quick line burst. — a month ago
