Cabernet Franc, Anjou AOC – 2012 – 4.5 stars – Opening a Bottle
4 points

“This weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed a bottle of the Cabernet Franc from Clau de Nell, a winemaker that is new to me — from the town of Anjou. I’ll be writing more about it in a few weeks, but the magic trick it pulled — rare among red wines — was aromatic power, palate complexity and low alcohol (12%) all intertwined together. At first, it presented powerful aromas that reminded me of black licorice, musk and even pencil lead, but these eventually faded, revealing a wild swirl of plum, blueberry, violets and leather. Definitely let it breathe for a good 30 to 45 minutes before serving alongside turkey.”
