Description

Natural wine and certified Vin méthode Nature made by the Cabernet Franc maestro Xavier Amirault.

Natural wine and certified Vin méthode Nature made by the Cabernet Franc maestro Xavier Amirault. Made without any addition of sulphur dioxide, which allows this precocious grape to be expressed in its purest and profound form. Blackcurrant leaf aromas with a hint of mint and white pepper. A soft and caressing palate with a silky mouthfeel which will have you reaching for the bottle every time for another glass!

  • 91 points, Decanter: “Deep plum and floral aromas. Aromatic and delicate on the palate with an attractive, vibrant texture. Tannins are ripe and well integrated. Can be drunk now but should age well.” (2020 vintage)
  • Best overall, The Independent 2023 – 13 best natural wines 2023: “Winemaker and cabernet franc champion Xavier Amirault from the Loire Valley fulfils all those criteria with a beautifully smooth wine with ravishing plum and damson notes that linger on the palate along with hints of blossom and spice.” (2019 vintage)
