Wine Name: Les Cerisiers Cotes de Francs
Producer: Chateau de Francs
Publication: Wine Advocate
An impressive marriage of two great winemaking teams are behind this cuvée, the Hebrard and Boüard families. The 2012 Les Cerisiers is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice and spice are all present in this dense ruby/purple wine. Pure, rich, fleshy and medium-bodied, this is another major sleeper of the vintage, capable of providing pleasure over the next 7-8 years.
