100% Cabernet Franc from a superb vintage for the variety. This will continue to develop very well over the next few years, but it's priced and built to be enjoyed on a day-by-day basis. One of our wines that I would never hesitate to suggest getting a case of if you love the unique earthiness and fruit of Loire Cabernet Franc. We tried Cedric's first vintage (2010) of this in June 2017, and the wine was wonderfully mature with still a few more years left in it.

This is full of lush, dark fruit with a streamlined elegance and freshness. Green pepper and the earthiness just absolutely scream Cabernet Franc. 30% of the vines are 25 years old, 70% are 80 years old. Grown on a 1 hectare parcel with shale soil, around Rablay-sur-Layon with 3 weeks of maceration, and 1 year of ageing in barrel. Only 4,000 made per year.
