Parcelle YB38 makes the more “typical” Cabernet Franc of Plouzeau’s two old vine vineyards, with bunches of dark fruit, flinty earth, and spicy pepper that place it comfortably within the genre. But there is an intensity to this wine, a density of aroma that propels away from the quotidian towards the exceptional. That density of fruit and earth is balanced beautifully with a generous acidity, lifting the wine and ensuring that it is a marvel that can be comfortably consumed, rather than become overwhelming and cloying after a few sips. The value that this wine provides, however, might be it’s most exceptional attribute. What could be better than finding such a cherishable wine at such an everyday price point.
