(2019) Certified organic, this Vin de France classified wine actually comes from Cabernet Franc vineyards in the Southwest of France, around Gers. It has a saturated, deep colour and an expressive, bright nose, a pinch of pepper over buouyant black fruits, perhaps a touch of carbonic maceration here? Certainly it has that lift and immediacy, as well as tell-tale Cab Franc nuances of capsicum. Juicy, vital and lithe on the palate, there's a linear flow of the black fruit, but always edged by tight tannins and juicy acidity. Very moreish, elegant and yet with a bit of food-friendly backbone too. £12.60 for Daily Drinker club members.
