Clotilde Legrand "Les Terrages" Saumur-Champigny 2019
This sustainably farmed Cabernet Franc is medium-bodied and intensely aromatic, with notes of black and bing cherry that preview the soft and voluptuous texture. Hints of green pepper, dried herbs, silky tannins, and balanced acidity make this a bright, yet rustic pairing for duck breast, hearty vegetable dishes, and even risotto.
