Straight from Savennières in the Loire Valley comes this precise, biodynamic red wine made of Cabernet Franc by Loïc Mahé.
The palate is dry with juicy acidity, feathered tannins and flavours of red cherry, plum, raspberry and spring leaf in a stoney frame.
WSET Very Good, there’s a slightly unbalanced lighter nose against the deeper palate. But otherwise, it’s bright, tart and delicious.
We enjoyed it with barbecued smokies and fresh vegetables to herald in summer.
Take a minute to check out Loïc’s website. It’s all in French, and is full of interesting information about his philosophy and making wine in Savennières. You can read a Winellama review of his Anjou Villages red wine here.
