Description

This Cabernet Franc has a deep ruby colour. The nose is characterized by aromas of raspberries, licorice, violet and a touch of pepper. It also has a little chalky side with notes of cocoa. In the mouth we discern the violet. The wood is well melted and the tannins are tight. It is a well-balanced wine, aged in French barrels for 12 months.

L’Orpailleur Cabernet Franc
« The 2018 is a step further. Better integration of the wood, both on the nose and in the mouth, allows the grape variety's nuances of red pepper and black cherry to be appreciated. This year again, the wine evolves a lot in contact with oxygen; it showed no signs of fatigue after 2 days of opening, without any protection. You can let it rest in the cellar until 2025. »

« This grape variety will fill your palate in this Quebec wine with notes of black fruit, pepper and sweet spices. The massive tannins give way to a juicy finish that makes you want to drink a second glass. Wow!  »
