Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 94 (2020 July)

From some of the oldest Cabernet Franc vines in France , planted in 1904 on silex soil. Aged in 2,500-liter foudre for 12 months. Richer, more generous and more open, a Loire Cabernet Franc that’s perhaps easier for newbies to understand and love. There’s more fruit here – aromas and flavors of blackberry, black cherry and plum - plus streaky, chalky tannins from midpalate to finish. This might be where I would point a Barolo or Brunello drinker who’s exploring Loire.
