This Loire Valley red wine is made from the Cabernet Franc grape and displays the bell pepper character and some stemminess often associated with this varietal from this region. Full-bodied and tannic with aromas of dark tart cherry. Lots of acidity. Pair with grilled pork chops. Decant 1 hour.
Food pairings: veal, roast chicken, grilled pork chops.

|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This wine is smoky and funky and fun featuring lots of ripe red berry fruit, herbs and purple flowers. Taut and tannic but ready to go now with wild fowl. I could drink a bottle of this in the Fall standing around a rotisserie. 90 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
100%Loire Cabernet Franc. Domaine les Pins has been in the ownership of the same family for five generations. Philippe Pitault-Landry and his family have maintained the integrity of their estate. They're independent of the local co-ops. They maintain traditional growing techniques sensitive to the land and its sustainability.
The colour is violet and ruby, with a watery rim.
Light and bright aromatics. It is very floral. There are some wonderful bergamot, cranberry, cassis, and tomato leaf notes too.
It has a nice, zippy acidity and moderate alcohol (as Bourgueil usually does). Plenty of red fruit. Subtle toasted wood note, followed by red and black berry notes. Cherry, blackberry, and fresh bell pepper.
This is a tasty Bourgueil and a nice choice for lighter fare - a particular favourite is roast duck and root veggies cooked in the fat. This producer has a very prestigious piece of land in Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil - four acres.
|92 POINTS, WINE ENTHUSIAST, ROGER VOSS, Nov 1, 2015 (LISTED IN THE BEST OF YEAR 2015)|
This rich, structured wine is packed with both firm tannins and rich red fruits. Still young, it has all the makings of a dense, balanced wine that will reflect the great fruit of the vintage. Age this smoky, full-bodied wine and drink from 2017.
|This Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley red wine is smokey with with crushed raspberry notes, green herbs, and a touch of pepper. The wine has the fruit, acidity and structure that it can cellar for a few years, but if you can't wait, decant it for one hour prior to serving and pair it with grilled pork chops.|
