Les Argelières Cabernet Franc
Made to our exacting specifications, Les Argelieres is a unique range of modern, fruity varietal wines from the Languedoc, made with the aim of showing the elegance, subtlety and perfect varietal 'signature' of each grape variety as planted in the warm vineyards of Southern France. Grown on selected cooler hill sites and with a yield limited by pruning and grape selection, this Cabernet Franc is a worthy award-winning red, offering ripe black fruits, a typical hint of capsicum, herbs and a lovely cherry and chocolate style so reminiscent of a Bordeaux red blended with a dollop of New World. Our winemakers look for the best time to harvest. The grapes are then destemmed, crushed and sent to maceration for about ten weeks. This long process is ideal to extract the fruity character of the variety. Daily tastings by our experts in the cellar ensure a nice structure with supple tannins.
