Medium bodied, red currant, liqourice and clean, new wood
Cabernet Franc is grown worldwide, it spans from light to medium bodied usually found in the Loire, to much deeper and richer expressions like ones from Uruguay. This Saumur-Champigny is an ideal lunchtime wine, best served slightly chilled. It is elegant, has red fruit characteristics and well-integrated tannins making it the perfect all-round wine. Vincent Nicolas is the sixth generation of his family to farm the vineyards at Domaine des Coutures in Saumur-Champigny. The Nicolas family has 15 hectares of vines made up of mostly of Cabernet Franc, which performs well in the clay and chalk soil. They practice sustainable viticulture and hand pick their vines.
