From a superb chalky terroir in Fully, the Plamont hillside, this great Cabernet Franc is aged for a year in Burgundy barrels: it has an admirable delicate raspberry nose, enhanced by a fine woodiness that gives it style; it has real fleshiness and greediness on the palate, as well as a chalky touch that is reminiscent of certain great Chinons!
