About

91

"From a terroir with red silex stones on limestone the authentic, unpretentious, vibrant, gastronomic 2011 Anjou Cabernet Franc displays a brillant and delicate bouquet of fresh and peppery fruit aromas typically linked with Cabernet Franc (black berries, blackcurrant, morello cherry), added with notes of graphite, rosemary and leather. On the palate this lovely red is a fresh, fleshy, but also transparent and silky textured red with a firm yet delicate structure and an aromatic floral finish and a good length. This delectable wine is a perfect match to roasted lamb and should be served with 16° C."

Product Description:

"Lovely, supple style of Cabernet Franc. The nose lets you know that this is Cabernet Franc with hints of green to mix with the lovely fruit, but the palate shows an expansive and polished style of Cabernet Franc, somewhat akin to what you find in Napa Valley, but with an inherently Bordeaux-like profile. This is easily one of the best examples of Loire Cabernet Franc you can find.
