Cabernet Franc often gets a bad rap, or at least overshadowed by its more illustrious relative: Cabernet Sauvignon. Think of it as the Clint Howard of the family. Lighter-bodied and more perfumed, Cabernet Franc reaches its apex in the Central Loire Valley in the vineyards surrounding the villages of Bourgueil, Saumur and Chinon, which is where this entry from Olga Raffault calls home. On the palate this wine is full, dry, and complex, with a core of lovely red and black fruit, fruit, supple tannins, tilled earth notes, and excellent balance that make it perfect for everyday entertaining. Practicing organic.
