In a nutshell: A deliciously crunchy French Cabernet Franc from vineyards situated on the limestone-clay and gravels of the Loire.
The lowdown: Eschewing chemicals and working without sulphur in the winery has helped make a gratifying aromatic red. The wine looks as if it has just been born, being vermilion-hued, exuberantly fresh, brimming with cherry and cranberry goodness and a lively wriggle of liquorice.
When to drink: Engaging, savoury and moreish and delicious served lightly chilled.
A hare-brained person, a coiffure, and a little storm in a wine glass. Sébastien David comes from a line of winemakers stretching back many generations.
Since 1999 he's made stunning Cabernet Franc wines from 15 hectares of vines planted by his grandparents around seventy years ago. His are natural wines from Ecocert certified fruit which is biodynamically farmed.
