Region France, Loire
Grape Cabernet Franc
Style Blackberry, Cherry, Olive
Approach Organic, Biodynamic
Bottle Size 75cl
Grosbois is run by 2 brothers, Sylvain and Nicolas in the Chinon appellation in the heart of the Loire valley.
Certified biodynamic, no oak has been used since 2015, and this bottle is vinified and aged in concrete to round it out a little but maintain freshness. Cabernet Franc gives a little of that pyrazine vegetative note, but is understated here and appears as a lovely fresh olive taste. Smashable and crunchy fruit, this is a very accomplished little number.
