Manure and violets and perfumed red fruit. Not a lot of concentration, drink now.

Yummy, lip smacking franc - purple blue freshness.

From sandy terroir. Fresh and light bodied, red fruit forward.

Manure on the nose. Light tannins. Starts with a bold flavor. Some barnyard in the aftertaste.

Great funk on the nose when opened. Good red fruit and a mouthwatering wine. A little thin but very pleasant.

Definitely made in style to other Cab Francs from Chinon. Lots of barnyard funk, green peppers and other herbs. Plenty of red fruits too that balance out the flavor.

Hits home with me. Acid like unripe stone fruit juice, stunning cranberry color, some funk. Cedar, rotting leaves, fresh red fruits and Concord grape coming in. Some alcohol heat on the back end. Really great.
