Cabernet Franc has found its new home in Villany, becoming a benchmark of the wine region. It perfectly suits the terroir and produces reliably year by year at our estate.
100% Cabernet Franc: straight, well-poised and harmonic, displays beautiful balance of vivid acidity and definite tannins. The nose is delicate, with complex aromas. On the palate the rum, truffle, clove, sour cherry flavours are complemented by oak-derived spiciness (cappuccino and brittle).
Favoured with beef, roasts, game dishes, stews, ripe cheese and bitter chocolate desserts.
Average winter, followed by early blooming and varied summer. Early vintage; warm and dry autumn. The wines are intensely fruity, balanced with elegant acids and tannins.
