2016 vintage. In the small Côtes de Francs AOC there is great value to be found. This organic wine is a blend of mainly Merlot, with some Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Deep colour, smoky nose with underlying cassis. Concentrated fruit, good acidity but unfortunately overextracted, leading to an overly tannic drying finish. Some people love this style, but it's not my cup of tea, concentration and extraction are not to be confounded. In my opinion this wine could be amazing with a more gentle extraction. Anyway, good value at less than 10 euros if you like the style. Abv. 14%.

Strong blackberry in the nose. A little bit smoky in mid-palette. Finishes very smooth with a hint of cherry

Did not love it. Drinkable, but wouldn’t buy again.
