Tasting Notes

It may be in the starting range of the Guiberteau Cabernet Franc’s but this wine is in a different league to the local Loire restaurant wines I tried a decade or so ago. From first smell you get fine dark fruits with some savoury spice hints and the ever-present Loire violets. First taste fills the mouth with elegant dark fruits and some Asian spicy notes. Many cab franc winemakers would love to get these silky fine tannins. Joyful! And it’s at the start of the range. 12.5%alc. - Michael L

100% Cabernet Franc. As with the Moulins Blanc, this label was created to provide a home to Guiberteau’s organic-in-conversion grapes. The vines are mostly located in Montreuil-Bellay, and includes a healthy portion of old-vine fruit from a recently acquired parcel on the Brézé hill. The vines vary in age from 10 to 80 years. The wine was raised in stainless steel only, with the idea of crafting a more open, delicious and early-drinking wine than the village bottling (also at a more accessible price). And it’s worked. This incredibly well-priced Saumur is flush with aromas of blackcurrant and dark cherry fruit, flecked with violet and Asian spices. The palate is a bright mix of caressing texture, mid-palate intensity and quenching tannin. Despite its drinkability, it has more depth than you might expect at this price point, and it drinks like a wine that will take to the cellar rather well. But why wait? - Importer Note
