Tasting

This wine is a subtle blend of the spirit of Cabernet Franc grapes and the soul of the limestone terroir where they matured.
On the nose, aromas of red berries mingle with notes of toast and blackcurrant jam.
On the palate, the fine tannic structure conferred by the unique Cabernet Franc grape makes this a wine that can be kept for up to 10 years.
