Three cheers for carbonic maceration! Ripe and stewed black fruit, spice and funk. A very cab sav-like cab franc.

I love these funky, farm-yardy Loire Valley Bourgueil cab francs, especially from Breton. Great selection from Dedalus Wine Shop in Burlington. $30.

Love it. A little funk. Good for summer, slightly chilled. Lip smacking.
