Thierry Germain Cep by Cep Anjou Rouge 2015

A second wine review from Thierry Germain Cep by Cep in the Loire Valley. This wine is an Anjou rouge, which is an organically tended 100% cabernet franc. Alas, the words “cabernet franc” do not appear on the front label like Thierry Germain’s chenin blanc.  I have not found this style of cabernet franc being made in Australia.  The 2015 vintage tasted here is all raspberries, strawberries, medium bodied and with a crisp smokey/twiggy fruit overlay.  This is recommended and lovely current drinking and a typical expression of Loire cab franc.  The vintage shown on the label photo is the 2014 vintage.  Rating: Good. Abv: 12.5%. Price: $30.
