Grape: Cabernet Franc
Tasting Notes: Black Currant, Raspberry, Plum, Herbs
Located in Parnay, Chateau Yvonne has been surrounded by vineyards since the middle ages, when the monks at the Abbaye de Fontevraud brought their influence to the region. This Cabernet Franc from the heart of the Loire Valley is farmed Biodynamically and Organically. It boasts a deep, rich color, then a nose of black raspberries, red and black currants, plums and cranberries. Taste is savory: berries, blood, meat, herbs. Bright acidity, structure. Great with food and perfect for wine students.
