Grapes: Cabernet Franc Region: Loire, France Style: Red ABV: 12.5% Any added sulphites: No Filtered: No Size: 75cl
Wild, crunchy and full of grip, this wine is packed with magnificent flavours of cherry and cranberry. It is super mellow, easy drinking perfection with a long and mineral finish.
The grape bunches are left on skins for 25 days with a free run juice at the bottom of the tank to start the fermentation process. The result is elegant, fruity and herbaceous.
Sébastien David makes deliciously crunchy Cabernet Franc from his vineyards situated on the limestone-clay and gravels of the Loire. He has a total of around 15 hectares, all family owned, spread across Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil so as to avoid the risk of localised frost. Eschewing chemicals and working without sulphur in the winery he makes a gratifying aromatic red. His family have always worked organically, and Sebastien also employs some biodynamic preparations.
