Region: Bourgueil, Loire Valley, France
Producer: Domaine De La Butte (Jacky Blot)
Grape: Cabernet Franc
Type: Red Wine
A young red wine that is concentrated and smooth with silky tannins and fine aromas of blueberries, currants and cherries. A touch of minerality and woody character. Red fruit predominate on the palate and are rounded off with touches of cocoa and spices, with a refreshing acidity. It is the living expression of Cabernet Franc grapes when ripe, but without their peppery note.
Food Pairing: Best to pair with Rice with Meat, Cold Meat, Roasted Red Meats or Pâté.
