Jeb Dunnuck, 98 Points 

"Another magical vintage for this great cuvée, Luc Morlet’s 2018 Cabernet Franc Force De La Nature offers a ruby/purple hue (it’s not completely opaque) as well as an extraordinary nose of blueberries, blackberries, flowers, graphite, lead pencil, and toasted bread. Incredibly layered and full-bodied on the palate, it’s nevertheless weightless and flawlessly balanced, with ultra-fine tannins and a building, majestic, seamless texture. All Cabernet Franc brought up in new barrels, this borderline perfect wine is going to benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and cruise for 25+ years.

Vinous, 95 Points 

"The 2018 Cabernet Franc Force de la Nature is a tiny production of 150 cases of pure Cabernet Franc from Coeur de Valle.  Varietal Franc notes are front and center intros classy, polished Oakville Franc.  Crushed rose petal, mint, cinnamon and blood orange linger on the long, finely delineated finish.  I would cellar the 2018 for at least a few years as it has quite a bit of tannin that needs to integrate.  This is another superb wine from young vines." 

Alcohol: 16%
