We are in love with this wine we got as a present and sample to taste and remind us for the Cabernet Franc day (4th Dec).
Cabernet Franc Day celebrates the Father of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cardinal Richelieu, who died on 4th Dec. For your Christmas table, Grab a bottle of Cabernet Franc and give tribute to this fantastic varietal!
Cabernet Franc is believed to have been established in the Libournais region of southwest France, sometime in the 17th century, when Cardinal Richelieu transported cuttings of the vine to the Loire Valley.
Today, Cabernet Franc is one of the twenty most widely planted grape varieties across the world.
“Cabernet Franc unites francophiles , terroir snobs, locavores, “balance” freaks and plant geeks. It is complex and distinctive and often wonderful. Cabernet Franc is the wine for our moment.”– Ben O’Donnell, Wine Spectator
