Red Wine /// Cabernet Franc // Loire / France
Cabernet Franc is the parent grape to both Cab. Sauv. and Merlot, though it doesn't get nearly the same recognition as it's spoilt children. Franc is an enigmatic and unique grape in that it has a slightly herbal, green character but its naturally high acidity means it is a great blending companion and some of the finest wines of Bordeaux contain Franc. Here in the Loire it enjoys its most classic expression. Clos des Quarterons is all bio-dynamic, and aged in steel with a gorgeous perfume. Winemaker Audrey Wambre said that there is a little Cabernet added for grunt. This is a dreamy example of Cabernet Franc and unusually gluggable for the variety. STSWine
