Well...if you can’t be in Chinon then at least pour this terrific Cab Franc into the correct glass. Chill slightly and serve with some BBQd baby back pork ribs. A lovely way to see out the summer of 2019. (Taste profile?:
It’s Cab Franc without that awkward vegetative tobacco influence that American consumers rightly ran from. Drink up...or wait till winter for a white bean/roasted leg of lamb cassoulet. ☺️)

Fruit & acid out front here. Approachable tart cherry juice. Tannins are silky. A new producer for me, and one that I will absolutely be revisiting. Accompanied by the debut album from Jake Xerxes Fussell. A great collection of Southern American folk songs. Fussell has a new album coming out in June and is an immensely talented storyteller & songwriter.
