Domaine Bobinet Greta Carbo Carbernet Franc 2018
Domaine Bobinet are a shining light for the natural wines of the Loire, For while they do not take any shortcuts in the crafting of their wines, they manage to make them cleanly, yet full of life, for great cross-over appeal.
Notes from the Lo-Fi crew:
The name is a giveaway of the mode of vinification! The Cabernet Franc grapes come from the tiny 60 year old plot Hardouine where the fruit is subtly different to the other cabernets of the domaine. Here, carbonic maceration gives the wine a singular identity; its silky texture holding a flavour all its own. Vegetal, fruity and peppery, it has a delicate and magical depth on the palate.
