A supreme expression of all that Cabernet Franc can offer

Richer and more concentrated than a typical Cabernet Franc with a ripe red fruit profile. Medium-bodied with flavours of raspberries, strawberries, red cherries, plums and blackberry leaf. Notes of tobacco, cedar and black olive from light oak ageing. Lightly filtered and no added sulphites gives the fruit a real sense of purity here.

  • 92pts Robert Parker (Tasted Aug '21)
  • Aged 1 year in Oak (15% New)
  • Selected from old vines
  • Organically farmed

Cellaring: 2024-2040

Food Pairing: Try the Chateaux's recommendation of quail stuffed with prunes and chanterelle, chicken pie with tarragon or steak with a fruit-based sauce.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

While Cabernet Franc is most usually to be found as a blending partner in Bordeaux, it is the signature red grape of the Loire. Robust and full of red fruit flavours, this "She-Devil" is selected from a single plot of old vines giving it an extra, concentrated edge over its contemporaries. Organically produced and hand harvested from a Chateaux with origins in the 14th Century. This is quintessentially the Loire in a bottle.
