2020 V Sens
Notes from the importer - Andrew Guard.
A blended cuvée of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Merlot from vines farmed biodynamically and planted on granite soils over white and red quartz. In the winery: grapes are transferred to barrels for 15 days of maceration by infusion, followed by gentle pressing to preserve the fruit flavours, and 10 months of maturation in two 400-litre barrels that have seen several wines and one conical barrel. Neither fined nor filtered, with a light dose of sulfur at bottling. This is an exceptionally elegant wine, little crispy red fruits, zingy acid and low alcohol - you could be in the Jura! The silky and moreish flavours linger and make this wine quite hard to stop drinking!
