Domaine de l’Astré ‘Onèsta’ 2019


Character: Delicious Cabernet Franc, fleshy and deep-flavoured. Low alcohol (12,5%) but with smokey dark fruit and silky tannins that suggest a bit more sunshine than the Loire. Immaculate juice, beautiful teardrop-shaped presence on the palate (perhaps due to terracotta aging). Stunning wine, tiny quantities unfortunately.

Vinification: Biodynamically farmed Cabernet Franc from clay-limestone soils. Short maceration and natural fermentation without additives in steel tanks. Aging in terracotta jars for 9 months, bottled unfined and unfiltered with a small touch (15 mg/L) of added sulphites.
