La Niverdiere Renaissance, Chinon
A gentle, delicious Cabernet Franc, with fresh and vibrant red fruit. No capsicum or bell pepper to be seen, but plenty of depth from the different soil types where it's grown. The wine was left in concrete for 5 years before bottling, which has yielded excellent results for integrating all the flavours into a nuanced and subtle Chinon red.
This is an exciting experiment by Martine Budé, after reinventing herself and becoming a winemaker - and taking to it quite naturally.
