France – 2018
Tasting Note: Soft, juicy Cabernet Franc from Chinon in the central Loire Valley, this is lightly leafy and full of red fruit.

Vineyard: With a plethora of different soil types on his 25 hectare property from which to choose his fruit, Pierre is able to produce wines of great character year in year out.
Vinification: 100% Cabernet Franc with no barrel maturation or ageing.
