Tasting note La Tour Beaumont
Bright red in color, powerfully fruity with a scent of juicy red fruit and a hint of beetroot. The taste is juicy, round and aromatic.
Cabernet Franc is the red grape of the great Loire wines such as Bourgueil and Chinon. These wines seem almost specially made for the Parisian brasseries and bistros where most of the production, often slightly chilled, is consumed. The grape is related (and probably also the predecessor) of the much better known cabernet sauvignon and gives a lighter, more smooth red wine with less drying tannin.
If harvested ripe, of course, otherwise cabernet franc is rough and sour. This one, from Pierre Morgeau, is of an exemplary quality with its accessible, fresh-smooth taste and beautiful fruit expression. Without wood maturation, because according to Pierre that does not suit the ideal way of serving. Young, slightly cool and preferably with a typical bistro meal such as pâté with baguette, salads or white meat.
