Reminiscing on that delicious carafe of bistro wine from your last jaunt to Paris? There’s a good chance that it was made from Cabernet Franc. Best known as the signature red grape of the Loire Valley, these peppery, earthy wines are perfect for enjoying chilled with a variety of hearty fare—and this affordable, well-made expression from fifth-generation winemakers Thierry and Lydie Chancelle at Domaine Chancelle is no exception.
Sustainable farming practices, 40-year-old vines, hand harvested, and vinified in a combination of tank and used oak foudres. Light filtration prior to release.
The ‘Les Champeaux’ premier cru vineyard was planted in 1987 on the northern edge of Gevrey-Chambertin. It’s located high up on the slope with south-east facing exposure which allows for slow and steady ripening. The result is a wine with great purity, structure and incredibly silky tannins.
Biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, unfined/unfiltered, vegan-friendly, and only 75 cases produced.
The fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from dry-farmed vineyards on the Western Cape of South Africa. This is a crowd-pleasing, gaux-to party wine. It’s bright, fruit-forward, and the perfect addition to any backyard BBQ.
Sustainable farming practices, minimal intervention winemaking, aged for 6 months in french oak and only 112 cases produced.
