Bourgueil is in the Loire, producing lighter reds made exclusively from Cabernet Franc.

This expression is light garnet in colour, with a nose of soil, cherry, cranberries and slight herbal and capsicum notes.

Red fruits predominate, with a savoury backbone. Light on the palate, with great acid to make this incredibly food-friendly and versatile. Serve slightly chilled.

Tasted February 2016.
