Terre à Terre Crayères Vineyard 2021 Cabernet Franc
Arther: Tim White
“Super fragrant — pristine raspberry leaf and assam. Uncluttered. Blond tobacco, gentle Aussie sous bois, a sniff of gentle pepper spice. And a kind of smoked tea, pie crust character. Some cocoa. Fruitcakey on the palate, but not too moist. The tannins are tight and brick dusty dry, spun into the plum and pippy juiciness. The oak has a coffee crema, crumble influence and is so in tune with the fruit. Wouldn’t mind seeing this again in a few years. Or tomorrow.
94(95)/100 – 9/10
