Olivier's old-vine Cabernet Franc, from vines planted in the 1950s on black loam infused with limestone. This is more dense than Pur Breton, as to be expected, but it retains the same playfulness and energetic freshness. Aromas of poppy seeds, black pepper, and strawberry with some gamey wildness. This is layered with spicy red fruits and pleasantly chewy tannins. It's clearly a rustic, natural wine, but it's far more serious to reduce it to that alone. There is a touch of barnyard but overall it's a wine with a lot of soul and balance, despite the expressive full-bodied style. Drink now with some richer fare or see what it does with some medium-term aging, maybe 3-6 years. Zero sulfur added.
