Saumur-Champigny AOC, Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Filliatreau, Loire, 2011
The 2011 is a warm vintage which produced Cabernet Franc with good ripeness and soft acidity. There are notes of various red fruits, cherries, herbs, and pencil graphite on the nose. Soft palate, and slightly dusty tannins on the finish . More winey than fruity. This wine is for those who enjoy sophisticated medium bodied wines with food.
For those who like fruits, try the back vintage release of 2003. Unbelivably ripe, lush, and pleasurable... the first time we have used these descriptors for Cabernet Franc!!
