La Fontaine Aux Fougères, Myosotis Bourgueil 2015, Loire, France
Tasting Note: Bourgeuil’s classic concentration paired with elegant aromatics.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black plum, pencil shavings, dried violet petal, forest floor, hay and strawberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-boded cabernet franc has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and slightly-velvety, medium tannin.
There is midpalate complexity and persistence of fruit ultimately completing with a medium-plus finish.
Bottle Note: 100% Cabernet Franc.
