100% Cabernet Franc.
Fragrant, fresh & herbal Cabernet Franc full of luscious red & blue fruit. Organic farming combine with natural winemaking where the wine sees no oak so the fruit & herbal backbone of this grape show through.
Raffault’s Les Barnabés is from a site to the west and downhill on a plain of alluvial soils near the Loire River. The sandy, gravelly site yields a lighter style of Cabernet Franc which is more approachable in it’s youth.
Fruit is organically farmed, harvested by hand, destemmed but not crushed, and fermented in tank with native yeasts. The fermentation is at cooler temperatures and the aging in tank only, all to preserve the freshness and brightness of the fruit.
