One of the lesser known Bordeaux red varieties although its more prominent in the Loire Valley. Despite this the legendary name of Château Cheval Blanc has occasionally had a 100% Cabernet Franc make up in its wine. Normally blended in Bordeaux but often bottled undiluted in the Loire, this rich red grape should produce a wine with a raspberry character with more apparent fruitiness than its more Famous Cabernet Sauvignon cousin. Now planted across the wine globe, with worthy mentions going to New Zealand and Australia.

This Domaine Horgelus red wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat, the latter being a local grape variety making rich and powerful reds. The wine has a fabulous concentration with aromas of blackcurrant, licquorice and spices. On the palate it has soft, ripe tannins to support the dark fruit flavours. Smooth and deeply flavoured it is the ideal accompaniment to grilled or roast meats and soft cheeses.
