Cabernet Franc likes aging; and this Cuvée 53 shows the benefits of that 5 years. Decant the unfiltered crystals out, then smell the classic pure cabernet franc dusty earth and blackberry fruits. Palate follows with elegant black fruits, and even a hint of soy. Then fine chalk tannin. 12.9% alc. Love good aged Loire Cabernet Franc. Michael L

Cuvée 53, les Vignes anciennes [the old vines] Vin de France 2014. Cabernet Franc mostly, there may be a few vines of cabernet sauvignon in the parcels. Mostly old vines, including a parcel planted in 1953 that's why the name. Destemmed grapes, short maceration (6 to 8 days) with minimal intervention except a délestage in the early fermentation, that is taking out the free-run juice and putting it back in the fermenter at the end of the day, this allows to re-oxygenize the vat and break the cap, redistributing the juice with the grapes. After that they just leave it all quiet and undisturbed. Usually no wood here but if they feel it needs a bit of élevage they put it in barrels for a while. - Winery Note
