'Pain Perdu' 2021 $38.99
From their largest vineyard, 'Pain Perdu': 100% Cabernet Franc planted on a mix of clay and sand. The grapes, from 40-year-old vines, undergo carbonic maceration and a long fermentation, creating silky smooth textures and buoyant flavors. Aged in a combination of tanks, old barrels, and clay amphora.
The effusive nose delivers a fresh bouquet of soft red and black fruit with earthy, herbal undertones and a delicate floral note. The palate bursts with juicy berry fruit, matched by rosemary and thyme accents. A firm mineral vein and soft tannins balance everything perfectly. Enjoy with a plate of charcuterie or any lighter fare.
