Domaine des sablonettes le petit bon Cabernet Franc

The Story

Christine and Joel Menard have been making wine in the heart of the Coteaux du Layon AOC for more than thirty years. They produce an outstanding array of wines from Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Gamay and Chenin Blanc. They practice biodynamic methods in their 13-hectares of vines. Christine and Joel run their domain to very exacting standards and as a result they produce stunning, natural wines—without employing artificial yeasts. The wines from Sablonnettes are not chaptalized or filtered, these wines are vibrantly alive.

M+Q Notes

Rich and powerful nose of stewed blackberry, strawberry, roasted pepper, licorice and mushroom. A bit gamy. Mostly plum, cherry and mushroom show on the palate. A little game like funkiness appears on the finish. Soft medium tannins that builds up a little over glasses and medium plus acidity. Medium bodied yet rich in flavour.
