First nose on the elegance of barrel aged Medoc cru bourgeois. When shaken, reveals his northern origin of Cabernet Franc. Dominant crunchy red fruit, framed by a natural freshness of Cabernet Franc. On the palate, a bit of astringency (but not dry tannins). Robust body. Request another one to two years for the complexity to be revealed.
