Cabernet Franc "Grandmaître" Barrique

Last bottle. Possibly my favourite cabernet ever...

This is a fascinating example of what can be achieved in Valais.

More about this wine

The traditional red grape Cabernet Franc is a native of France and is found most commonly in Bordeaux and the Loire. It gives wines great depth of colour and has ample tannins ensuring long ageing potential. This is another unusual wine for Valais but is a fascinating example of what can be achieved here. 

I love this Cabernet :)


ABV 13.3%. Drink at 16-18°C with red meats or venison. Keeps 10 years. 



Tasting Notes

2007: A deep red, with a soft nose of fruit and herbs and a hint of spice. Gentle and soft on the palate, quite intense with lots of body and good length.
