Blanc de Franc has a pronounced mousse when poured, and the aromatics of citrus zest are immediately evident. Just a glimmer of faint colour reveals its pedigree of 100% cabernet franc grapes. This sparkling lingers expressively, allowing for the enjoyment of all its complexities.
The palate is brilliantly bright and balanced, as the effervescence combines with a rich mouthfeel to create exceptional texture. This is a wine of great finesse, as the acidity perfectly contrasts the weight provided by the cabernet franc grapes. Subtle yet compelling flavours of ripe citrus and sweet herbs, with nuances of red currant and white mulberries, anchor the entire tasting experience. Blanc de Franc demonstrates extraordinary balance, as the flavours harmonize perfectly with the elegant structure and refined texture.
