Le Cabernet Franc du Frandat

AOP Buzet


After a dry and warm spring, summer 2017 was sullen, without much heat, then late August and whole September were wet and fresh, which caused rapid harvest, with wines of a nice balance and without too much concentration.
Our vines are situated on a wide plateau, on the heights of Nérac, Gascony.
Clay and limestone soils
This vintage was aged 8 months for two thirds in ovoid tanks and for a third in new 500 litres barrels. This special ageing sublimates the fruit and the spicy side, the very discreet oaky taste bringing complexity.
