This is a great value. Very pleasant light package (many other Bourgueil are thicker sweeter stuff, legally including Cabernet). Underripe strawberry on nose and palate, juicy plum, geranium a bit and some sweet toasted cedar more typical to Bourgueil. Great food wine or vin de soif.

Strawberry, plum, cranberry, and leather. Medium acid. Lots of tannin.

A unique, light cab franc with raspberry, cherry and distinct red bell pepper notes. Interesting and easy. Great with a hearty meal.

Very tasty. Warms me up as I’m drinking. No real big tasting notes in my opinion.
