Le Pied de la Butte Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2021

Not for the timid if an in-your-face Cab Franc is one’s introduction to the varietal. That said, a few put away in the cellar will bring much joy down the road. At the moment the wine is defined by dark berries, orange peel, green pepper and yes, even herbes de Provence. Crazy, I know. While a Fleurie and Limniona will bookend tomorrow’s Thanksgiving meal, a sneak pour of this Cab Franc is all but guaranteed. Can’t wait! 🦃🇺🇸🦃 — 6 months ago

Power and restraint. High toned. Red fruit. Olives and some white pepper. Needs long decant at this point. Really killer with this strip steak — 3 years ago
