This is one for the cellar. Yes, it’s seductive now, but put the bottle down. Yes, the review below will make you want to crack one open now, but put - the - bottle - down! Lukas van Loggerenberg told us that his inspiration for this Cabernet Franc (known in the Loire as ‘Breton’) is Chinon, which needs years and years before it’s at its best. If like us, you buy a case of wine that needs a decade or so to reach its peak, you will try a bottle every year to see how it’s getting on and by the time it’s ready to drink you’ve drunk the whole case. That won’t happen here, because we only have a handful of bottles, so grab one, stick it away in the cellar and forget about it until 2028. We look forward to receiving your thank you note (please address it to the Old Vintners Retirement Home). Drink 2028+.

Press review:

Jancis Robinson: “So perfumed! Beautiful black-olive bitterness. Superb – just so intricate, and with easy drinkability and effortless length. Serious yet super-fun too. Liquid joy! Drink 2019-2029.” 17.5+ points
