I love Loire Valley Cab Franc. Our wine cellar is full of bottles both young and old and you are likely to enjoy a glass (or three) if you hang out at our house for any amount of time. One of my favorite values from the region is Catherine & Pierre Breton Bourgueil “Trinch!”. Each and every vintage, I feel like I can rely on getting a delicious, pure Cab Franc.
I recently uncorked the 2015 vintage of “Trinch!” for the first time and was once again drawn in by its pureness and honesty. The nose offers up aromas of dark fruit with hints of smoke. The palate is fresh and light showing off bright blueberries & strawberries that mingle with herbal nuances. Vibrant acidity and super easy to drink. Serve with a slight chill and watch it disappear quickly!
