Grape - Cabernet Franc
Where - Loire Valley, France
What - From 35-year-old organically cultivated vines right next to the River Loire, Antoine Sanzay is working total magic. This riverside location is home to 11 hectares of both Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc and makes for grapes that ripen evenly due to calmer temperature fluctuations.
Master sommeliers all over the world are talking about Antoine right now. He's got wine lovers excited about a new take on Loire reds, with a rustic vibe that only adds more charm and desire to drink. Plonk this down on a table of red wine fiends and it'll soon vanish.
Stainless steel fermentation and a precise 6-months of ageing mean that this amazing Cabernet Franc is good and ready to gulp right now. You get all the classic mint notes and a hint of sage that defines a Loire Valley Cab Franc masterpiece.
This is a total knockout of the wine. It's absolutely stunning with big ol' flavours of parma violet, blueberry, redcurrant, bark and red cherry. It pours an elegant, rich red colour with a highlight of silky smooth tannins.
For fans of wine from this region - a real must-try!
