One of the original red Bordeaux varieties that is principally grown for blending with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in the Bordeaux style, but can also be vinified alone, as in the Loire’s Chinon. In addition to being used in blends and produced as a varietal in Canada and the United States, it is made into ice wine in those regions.
Cabernet Franc is lighter than Cabernet Sauvignon, making a bright pale red wine that contributes finesse and lends a peppery perfume to blends with more robust grapes. Depending on the growing region and style of wine, additional aromas can include tobacco, raspberry, bell pepper, cassis, and violets.
The 2022 Baudry-Dutour Cuvée Marie Justine exemplifies what we love about Rosé. With a pale, salmon-hued colour, the wine displays a bouquet of fresh citrus and strawberries with notes of tangerine, peaches and hints of white summer flowers. The palate is dry, balanced and elegant with restrained alcohol and a mouth-watering finish. New vibrant label for 2022!
