Domaine de Brau 'Pure' Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc is a prestigious grape used in Bordeaux blends to add aroma and complexity, most famously by Chateau Cheval Blanc, where two-thirds of the vineyards are planted to Cabernet Franc. Despite this, it is rarely used as a single varietal, but that trend is changing thanks to wines like this. It has plenty of fruit, plus the hallmark aromatics, savoury complexity and the all-important freshness that makes it such an enjoyable, easy drinking wine.
'Based near Carcassonne, this 40ha estate has been organic for more than 30 years. It is unusual to see a 100% Cabernet Franc in the area but this cuvée shows the potential: herbs and black cherry on a refreshing, savoury palate that makes easy and enjoyable drinking.' 88 points, Decanter Magazine, April 2016 (2013 vintage)
Domaine de Brau
Organic since 1989, with appproximately 40 hectares of vineyards planted on a range of loam, chalk, marl and sandstone soils, Gabriel and Wenny are able to plant their vines in the soil that suits each of the grapes best. Blessed with the Languedoc’s predictable sunshine, they also benefit from the cooling sea breezes. A perfect combination for any vine to thrive in!
