Cabernet Franc can have multiple interpretations in the Loire valley, from easy drinking everyday wines to upmarket cuvées. This bottle is made from vines planted in the typical local soil called “Truffeau”, which is mostly made of porous clay and the Cabernet Franc thrive in there. Le Bouquet develops harmonious notes of red fruit, representative of the Loire vineyards. Aromas of strawberry, redcurrant and cherry are nicely balanced with notes of spice. This is a lively, light-bodied red to be enjoyed slightly chilled over a white meat.

This Pouilly-Fumé comes from one of the most prestigious parcels of the appellation, which has been recognised in 1492. It has been fermented in oak barrel to develop the aromas and complexity of the wine. The result is amazing, with an incredible nose of white flowers and grapefruit. On the palate, aromas of ripe apple, lime and peach take over, ending...
A fresh and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc, perfect afterwork or aperitif wine! Very fruity with notes of citrus, lime, peach and white flowers on the palate.
