La Source Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2022

Opened yesterday, drank over 2 days.
The nose is very fruity and intense with dark cherry touches, earthy notes, some raspberry and blackberry scents too. I could even smell some peony notes too. This is really inviting. The palate is wide and long and quite complex. A good acid drive, some dark cherry notes all along, some very soft and easy going mouthfeel that is changing in mid palate with a great tannic wall, which adds a layer of dust over an otherwise quite juicy and fruity finish. In the back-end though, there is a tiny savoury note that pops along with a subtle bitterness. This is really my kind of cab franc. Really good stuff!

The red wines I tasted when I was at the south of the Loire were very different (special) compared with "typical" French wines. The complexity is not defined by the body, but by its finesse in taste. You taste the fruit, but their sweetness is in balance with the acidity with makes them taste elegant. At least when its a well-made Bourgueil. I also taste a lot of bad ones over there. This one, recommended by my importer, is just excellent. 16€ is not cheap, but for this one, worth its money. — 7 months ago

Drinking much younger than expected. Still plenty of fruit and drinking at peak. Should go another 20, no problem! — 5 months ago
