Cabernet Franc 2014
Le Nez, Languedoc France
Today a lovely biowine from Languedoc region made by the famous winemaker José Galante, head winemaker of Bodegas Salentein.
Le Nez – Cabernet Franc 2014 (88 tsomw points)
20% of this wine is aged in new French oak barrels, 20% in vat and 60% in 1 and 2 year old barrels. The wines are racked and bottled according to the biodynamic calendar.
In the glass a deep ruby red color with garnet rim.
On the nose delicate aromas of blackberries and other ripe red fruit with hints of herbs, black olives and something vegetal.
On the palate dry, medium/full-bodied and well balanced with flavours of ripe cherries, cranberries and well integrated oak. The acidity is refreshing with a nice finish.
Beautiful when combined with grilled meats, venison, wild boar and cheese.
Gold medal at Mundus Vini in 2017.

Silver medal at the Decanter World Wine Challenge.
