Finally, I’ve found a red from the Loire that expresses the depth and deliciousness of this incredible region.
Over the last little while, I’ve ran into a lot of plonky reds from the Loire, but this one… THIS IS WHAT IVE BEEN LOOKING FOR.
Juicy raspberry, sweet 🍒 , strawberry 🍓 compote, those dried leaf 🍂 and bundle of twigs notes characteristic of cooler climate cab francs, vanilla, light touch of French oak, topped off with velvety smooth tannins. Medium + finish, medium body, acidity is kept well in balance. So so good. 🤤
