Nicolas Reau Anjou Enlevement Demande
This low-sulphur, zero oak Cabernet Franc is juicy, velvety and packed with summer fruit, and will appeal to fans of New World Pinot Noir.
The label is a typically tongue in cheek choice by Nicolas Réau, who is a bit of a rebel himself. The image is taken from the stickers put on badly parked cars by the French authorities, ('Enlèvement Demandé', translates to 'Removal Requested') to get them towed if not moved by the owner. While Réau was trying to name this wine, one of these was being slapped on his car outside. Voila! Decision made.
Réau started out as a jazz and blues pianist, before making a dramatic career change that took him into the world of wine. However, he's already built quite the reputation in the community, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Marcel Lapierre and Yvon Métras. Réau also married into the industry, coupled up with Sylvie Augereau: she's a wine writer and huge proponent of the low intervention wine movement.
