Producer: Roches Sèches/Domaine de la Guimardière (Biodynamic)
Region: Loire Valley
Wine: 2015 Cabernet Franc Le Jeau

The soils in Le Jeau vineyard are mainly schist, which provides a perfect base for growing Cabernet Franc. The wine shows excellent grit and backbone with ripe, well-integrated tannins. Dark fruit aromatics of plum and berries with some earthy notes lead into a wine with nice tension and precision. Ideally, this wine should age for year or two more in the bottle to allow the tannins to subside a bit, but the gorgeous forward fruit coats the palate and makes it delicious with just about any dish that screams out for a bold, structured, fruity wine.
