Cabernet Franc

Chinon Marc Brediff 2020, Domaine Ladoucette

Made from Cabernet Franc grapes grown in the Loire Valley, this wine impresses with its elegant nose of red berries, ripe cherries, and spices. On the palate, it is a complex wine with a perfect balance of tannins and acidity, making it suitable for long-term aging. The wine is aged in oak barrels, which impart a subtle hint of vanilla and smoky note to the wine, adding to its charm. Its refined structure and incredible depth make it a wine that you will surely enjoy, whether with a meal or on its own.
Domaine Mas Barrau Cabernet Franc 2022, Pays du Gard
£ 11.15
Cabernet Franc is much under-rated and rarely cultivated outside its traditional habitats of Bordeaux and Loire.
The palate is incredibly long and very rich with fleshy fruit flavours counterbalanced by a bitter, woody, character and a thread of honey.
