Really impressed by this Loire Cabernet Franc, which delivers a lot of pleasure without costing a fortune.
Frédéric Mabileau Les Roullères 2019 Saint-Nicholas-de-Bourgeuil, Loire, France
13% alcohol. Organic. A varietal Cabernet Franc from 25-40 year old vines. Supple floral aromatics with red cherry and a touch of blackcurrant. Light, fresh and ripe with juicy black fruits on the palate, as well as some gravelly notes. Such a juicy Cabernet Franc with lovely expressive fruit. 92/100 (£14.99 Waitrose)
