Recommendation: A wine we rate as a Quality wine at a Bargain price.
Winery/Producer: Éric Chevalier, Domaine de l’Aujardière; Saint-Philbert de Grandlieu, France.
Grape Variety: Cabernet Franc.
Geographic Region, Appellation: Loire Valley, France.
Paired With: Turkey dinner, sweet potato and gravy, greens.
Opened one-hour before drinking. Clear, reddish color with a light rim. Light damp wood and ripe raspberry aromas. Smooth mouth-feel and a slightly peppery taste; than at mid pallet through the long finish it develops a dry musty fruit flavor that is simply delicious. Perfect pairing with the leftover turkey dinner, but equally good drinking alone after the meal. VERY nice varietal Cabernet Franc
