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. This Cabernet Franc is dual-vintage blend primarily from the lush 2020 vintage with the addition of the brighter wine from 2019. Both vintages were aged in French barrels for 12 months.

L’Orpailleur Cabernet Franc
« Rather than a thirsty, fruity and alluring Cabernet franc, that of Orpailleur is in keeping with the style of those from the Joguet estate in Chinon. The woody imprint is present, but it serves the classic profile of the wine well, especially after a few hours of opening. Lamb's lettuce, ripe tannins, a pretty fruit that emerges under notes of cigar box and undergrowth, and a long finish, crowned with noble bitters. An excellent wine that can be kept in the cellar until 2025-2027. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 »

« 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!  »
