Domaine Mas Barrau, Cabernet Franc, Pays du Gard
Please call or email us for an estimated delivery date
There is a wild ripeness of sweet orange-zest scented raspberry fruit twinned with an edgy woodland perfume. The palate is incredibly long and very rich with fleshy fruit flavours counterbalanced by a bitter, woody, character and a thread of honey.
Cabernet Franc is much under-rated and rarely cultivated outside its traditional habitats of Bordeaux and Loire. At Mas Barrau in the Gard region of Southern Rhône, Samantha and Eric have worked to produce a wine that sets new standards for Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc grapes for this cuvée came from a single Domaine family estate near Nimes.
Try with Juicy lamb shanks, rich tomato based dishes laced with roasted garlic and pepper, marinated steak with mashed potato and green beans or savour it at the end of the meal over a good cheeseboard.
