Food Pairings for Beaucanon Cabernet Franc
The color is of deep ruby red and perfectly clear with minimal sparkling. The nose is of earth and light fruit tones. The initial taste is sharp, but mellows and copies the nose perfectly. The follow-through is mellow and has a light mouth feel. There are earth notes and slight wood tones, but almost non-existent fruits. The wine is great and mirrors anything tomato based perfectly.
