This is a delicious fresh wine from Chateau de Coulaine, a 12-hectare estate operated by Etienne and Pascale de Bonnaventure, who have been practicing organic and biodynamic farming since 1988. This 100% Cabernet Franc wine comes from the youngest vines near the Chateau, along the Vienne river, grown on clay/limestone and sandy clay soils. Harvested by hand, the grapes are macerated at cold temperatures and aged in concrete vats with little extraction and fining. Sulfur is added at minimal dosage at bottling. The nose shows a pretty aromatic bouquet of dark and red cherry, dark raspberry, strawberry, violet, chocolate, dark tobacco, light pyrazine and savory notes. The palate is vibrant with fresh acidity and silky tannin. A wine full of energy, drink it with light fares such as grilled pork chops, roasted chicken and light cheese. Caroline Coursant
