Franc de Pied Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2014

The first whiff is moderately Bretty, if the clove-and-band-aid kind, not overwhelming but adding complexity; then slight green peppercorn but not particularly vegetal. A cherry and dark berry note next but not until this has been one. For an hour do I get a note of sweet red raspberry and strawberry fruit, almost candied, that really emerges on the palate (very different grape but similar to the “inner mouth sweetness” that people often associate with Giacosa). The palate gains heft with time open but remains middleweight, mouthwatering and nicely balanced. Tannins are unobtrusive and soft, with little bite.

This exceeded my expectations and was quite classy, if not likely to be the most long-lived of Loire reds. For Franc-de-pieds, there still is no comparison to Plouzeau’s, and this is far lighter but definitely a high class wine.

really pretty vibrant and classic nose. red cherries red currant earth and rose petals.

super light and silky on the palate. very easy drinking, smooth, delicious glass of wine. finish is a bit brief but probably needs more time to open up.
