Lots of soul. (I meant soil but I like soul too so thanks Siri) good cab franc character. Deep fruit and a touch of herbs. This drinks beyond its price point. Really rustic yet modern at the same time. Clean but funky. It's tough to say. I can say like it a lot!

2013. In a beautiful place. Crunchy black fruits, rain, wet clay, autumn hikes.

Had the ‘15 a couple of weeks ago. Green pepper is gone. Lots of ripe plum.

All Cab Franc. Delicate and not too overwhelming red with jam on the nose.

Like cherry pie in a glass. Totally digging this. From our tasting at Domaine des Roche Neuve.
