Varietal: Cabernet Franc  
Year: 2016 

Vinous, 93+ Points 

"This wine will be released in 2021, and I tasted it after only a year in the bottle.  Cool, fresh and elegant.  Bright and fruity, raspberry, wild strawberry, mint, licorice, unique tart, juicy notes of Ruby Red grapefruit and a long chalky finish.  Generous and open already." 

Decanter, 92 Points 

"Mint-infused brisk blackcurrant fruit is accompanied by floral and spicy notes, contributing to the complexity on the nose. Firm tannins undergird the vibrant palate of this eminently drinkable wine." 

About the Producer: 

"One collector described an appointment at Clos Rougeard as “harder to get than an audience with the Pope,” and it goes without saying at this point that they are considered the greatest expressions of the Cabernet Franc grape made anywhere in the world. Finessed, perfumed, incredibly ageworthy…these wines have it all. 

While intense and unabashedly tannic in their youth, the structure of the wines at Clos Rougeard allows them to go the distance, which Nadi and Charly enthusiastically cellar for future generations to enjoy." 

Alcohol: 12.5%
