Superb Cabernet Franc

This is an impressive Loire red, with an intoxicating aroma of forest fruits and spices. I understand that Jacky Blot, the winemaker tries to neutralise the grape's tendency to develop bell pepper and undergrowth aromas as he is weary of any sort of "greenness". That is a pity because that will just add further complexity and liveliness, but it is silly to complaint about it as this is truly superb winemaking. Will come back for more.
