Domaine Cady Anjou Rouge 2018

Cabernet Franc|Loire Valley

In the New World, Cabernet Franc is arguably under-appreciated. As one of the "parents" of Cabernet Sauvignon, it's rightfully lauded and holds an important place in France, especially in the Loire Valley.  We're always on the lookout for fresh, value-driven Cab Franc such as this from Anjou, in the verdant Loire Valley.

Founded in 1927, husband-and-wife team Sylvie and Philippe Cady run this family estate nestled in the Layon valley, a tributary of the majestic Loire river. Their son, Alexandre, is the fourth generation to carry on the family name.

Harmony and organic viticulture has been integral from the the outset; zero chemicals are used and oak is employed judiciously, with a focus on fruit ripeness and balance. The wine is as classic as it gets: black cherry, plum, green peppercorn, herbs, and graphite. A refreshing, bright, but chewy red if there ever was one.

A wine like this loves pizza, roasted chicken, or legume salad. Free shipping on six+ bottles!
