Cabernet Franc 2014
The sharp sound of the sword being drawn reveals the perfection of the blacksmith’s work…
At the wine’s core is its deep color with an electric magenta-purple rim. A complex and enticing nose of dark plums, black raspberry, bell pepper, forest floor, olives and graphite. The mouthfeel is pleasantly chunky with slightly aggressive tannins, a supporting acidity, and well-balanced fruit. This is a serious wine that unveils a structure that rewards those who are patient.
This 100% Cabernet Franc was sourced from a small winery created in 1932 in the heart of the Bordeaux region. The vineyards and winery are located at the entry of Monségur, a fortified town from the 13th century founded by Eléonore de Provence who was married to Henry III, King of England. Queen Eléonore traveled to this village often where it was said she “enjoyed abusing the good food and the good wines produced in the region”. The region is known worldwide for producing wines with depth and finesse and this wine represents the heart of the terroir and the generations of vineyard cultivation behind it.
