Cabernet Franc, Anjou AOC – 2012 – 4 stars – Opening a Bottle
“Tasting notes: A pure and rounded expression of Loire Cabernet Franc. Dark, inky purple in color, it offers poignant aromas that almost singe the back of the nose. Recalls wet stones, musk, oak and black licorice before revealing a very even layer blueberries, cherries, violets and leather. The structure of the wine reminds me (oddly enough) of a Chianti Classico, with a similar drying, oaky finish.
“Recommended for: Would pair beautifully with duck, roasted pork or lamb, but I feel it is best enjoyed with a rich cheese plate.”
