Made with 100% Cabernet Franc grapes, this sparkling wine has earned a reputation for extraordinary character and quality. Grapes are hand-harvested at the peak of flavour and acidity. The handling and pressing are gentle to obtain only the most desirable juice.
Blanc de Franc has an expressive nose of citrus, apple, gooseberry and sweet herbs. The freshness carries through into the vibrant palate. The fruitiness is evident as flavours of grapefruit, green apple and Meyer lemon shine through. There is an enticing backbone of sweet herbs, citrus zest and a hint of green olive. Blanc de Franc also shows its pedigree as there is the slightest trace of red fruit, just a tease of red currant and raspberry. The weight of the wine is pronounced, as the texture drives a long presence on the palate and leads to a lovely transition into a lingering, complicated finish.
For sipping or with food, this is an extraordinary wine.
