Nicely made wine. The colour is light purple leaning towards orange. The nose is a bit closed, but offers mulberry, potpourri, berries, earthy soil (manure). Tastes of berries with minerality notes (baked rocks). Nice clean finish with quality tannins.

Did not like this at all. It had an overwhelming green leafiness to both it's nose and palate. Very old-school. It's certainly distinct, interesting even, but not at all my thing. If French Cabernet Franc is what you're after, spend a few extra bucks and get a Chinon.
