Pearl Morissette Cuvée Madeline Cabernet Franc 2013
One half remains on the yeast in large barrels for 18 months and is aged in used large barriques, the other half matures in concrete. Placed unfiltered and unadorned on the bottle. To be located in the nose on the Loire, but with a little more punch. Dark berries, blueberries, blackberries mixed with cloves and cinnamon. Behind them come figs, dates and violets. The slight vegetative note is probably due to the fact that almost half of the grapes were fermented undressed here. This gives the nose a deliberately fresh structure. On the palate we have cherry, but also currant and cranberry. Mouthwashing, juicy, the fruit notes are dominant here - but everything with a good grip. Strong tannins, great acidity, a lot of structure and expression. Despite all the strength, very happy to drink. In the first and second approach really not to be interpreted overseas. Great Cabernet Franc with depth and excitement.
