Cabernet Franc

Viticulture

Cabernet Franc is much under-rated and rarely cultivated outside its traditional habitats of Bordeaux and Loire. At Mas Barrau in the Gard region of Southern Rhône, Samantha and Eric have worked to produce a wine that sets new standards for Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc grapes for this cuvée came from a single Domaine family estate near Nimes.

Ratings & Reviews
Vinification

Samantha and Eric look specifically for vines which are south-facing and can achieve the most sunlight to source the Cabernet Franc grapes for this wine. The terroir is full of limestone which gives rich yet soft and lightly acidic wine – this in turn gives the drinker a pleasantly sweet sensation on the palate Machines are used in farming but the vinification processes are very traditional and natural when making this wine.
