2015 VDF Julien Pineau 'L'écume des nuits' Cabernet Franc

Loire Valley, France

An incredible winter warmer. If you're into your Loire reds, this is perfect for now. Gentle, black cherries, blackberries, and strawberries. Rolling texture with a crisp tart finish and easy to drink. Soul soothing. Ryan Larkin reports she comes alive even more on day 2.

2015 VDF Julien Pineau 'L'écume des nuits' Cabernet Franc
About the maker

In one of the most exciting parts of the Loire, Clos Roche Blanche, the history of the Clos dates back to the late 19th century, when Catherine's family first planted vines.

After Catherine Roussel retired in 2014, Didier Barouillet took over and started what is now Julien Pineau. Surrounded by forest, the vineyards stretch out over gentle slopes, and are extremely pretty. Flowers are everywhere, birds, butterflies, bees, grasshoppers, all sorts of insects. The vines vary in age, with some of the oldest Pineau d'Aunis in the area up to 120 years old. Although not certified, Didier uses biodynamic principles and preparations throughout. The wines are energetic, elevated and very Loire. The high quality, prominent fruit and etherial delicacy.
