Tasting Notes

100% Cabernet Franc. The lion’s share of Guiberteau’s village rouge is sourced from three parcels of old-vine Cabernet Franc (planted from 1955 to 1957) which lie on silty/sandy topsoils over limestone on the Brézé hill. Today one-quarter of the fruit is drawn from Mollay, which is close to the domaine and, as Guiberteau attests, adds spritely lift to the blend.

Made entirely from destemmed grapes, this fruit-forward bottling was naturally fermented in concrete before spending 12 months in large tronconique barrels. This reverses the logic we found in the white releases, where the Moulins is elevated above villages. Romain Guiberteau clearly thought the same, hence the pricing. In the classic style of this wine, it’s impressively lucid and super-succulent, with sweet red cherry flavours giving way to persistent, gently grippy and refreshing tannins on a long, layered and gratifying finish. The 2020 really grows in the glass, so give this a quick decant. - Importer Note
