2015 Domaine Aime Cabernet Franc....$12.99
2015 Technical Notes: This is one of the rare, pure Cabernet Francs from the vineyards around Minervois. After the grapes are harvested they are 100% destemmed, crushed, then fermented and aged in tank before bottling. The grapes are sustainably farmed, and vinified using indigenous yeasts. There is no oak aging for this wine.
Tasting Notes: Rémi Bonnet produces a delightful Cabernet Franc. This wine avoids many of the pitfalls often associated with the grape, but remains a true expression of the varietal. It is a soft and lush wine that has the versatility to complement a wide variety of foods. In the nose black cherry, blueberry, and plum notes mix with just a hint of white pepper spice. In the mouth the wine is very soft and silky, dominated by black fruit flavors. The satin textured finish is complimented by ripe round tannins. This wine is ideal for pork, turkey, hamburgers, or even pizza
