Catherine et Pierre Breton Clos Sénéchal Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2012

$29

The most elegant of all the single vineyard Cabernet Francs from Breton. Calls to mind a Burgundian-like texture, with the tell-tale fresh potting soil, black cherry, and graphite notes that make Loire Cabernet Franc so captivating. Our very favorite Bourgueil!

Graphite and crushed rocks on the nose, with loads of graphite and crushed rocks on the palate, leading seamlessly to a graphite and crushed rock-laced finish. #CabernetFranc is my work wife.

Catherine et Pierre Breton #Bourgueil Clos Senechal 2012 #CabFrancDay #CabernetFranc #LoireValley paired with my beef short ribs over gnocchi. Elegant and smooth but with a touch of barnyard.

The 2012s from Breton are so good right now, and so, so, so Cab Franc. It smells like hot, wet Sierra Nevada granite after a summer shower. That probably sounds completely asinine, but that smell takes me straight back to family camping trips in the mountains.

Double decanted and taken to dinner. Ahh, cab franc! Fills the mouth with berries, earth, black olives, and on and on. Delicious.

In a lineup of all of Breton’s current releases, this is the cuvée that knocks me out: open, red-fruited, lovely heady aromatics. Just totally alive & singing. A stunner.
