2015 VDF 'L'Insoumis du Village'
Mainly Cabernet Franc with 6 other varieties - all organic. De-stemmed by hand. Fermented separately, then 30 months élevage in old demi-muid.
Darkest in colour and still looks young. Blackberries, boysenberries, currants, dark chocolate and warm soil on the nose. Lots of baking spice and pretty florals coming through with time. Nice sour cherry flavours on the palate, with mineral backbone and medium acidity. Silky glide, effortless to drink. Little berries burst onto the scene and add to the flavour. Complexity builds with time in the glass. Elegant and lightly fruity, this is a younger version of this great wine, and a superb example at that.
