2015 La Grange Aux Belles 'Prince'
Grape/s: Cabernet Franc
This is a beautiful Cab Franc from Marc Houtin at la Grange aux Belles in Anjou. In a very different style than in Chinon or Bourgueil, the wine shows lovely aromas of black raspberry, strawberry and prune with earth, musk and blood orange. The palate is supple and silky with a melange of black and red fruits, cocoa and violet with nice lifting acidity. Light but dense with good length and a very pretty finish of velvety red fruits and refreshing acidity. Lovely wine! Serve cool over the next five years or so, with roast chicken, pork and Middle-Eastern dishes.
