Place: Anjou – Loire Valley, FRA
Variety: Cabernet Franc
Nicolas was a jazz and blues pianist until he was 22 at which age he swamped keys for seccateurs.He studied winemaking and viticulture at Montreuil and supplemented these studies with more at Bordeaux. He bought this vineyard in 2002 and in 2007 he founded his own négociant business, buying grapes from other growers.
This back-vintage cabernet franc is raw and vivacious, a vivid expression enlivened by the smell and taste of wild flowers and fresh red fruit. No sulphur was added at anytime for this cuvee.
