2017 Domaine Bobinet ‘Greta Carbo’ Cabernet Franc
Heavily influenced by the godfather of natural winemaking, Jules Chauvet of the Beaujolais, and under the guidance of the Loire’s renowned Foucault brothers of Clos Rougeard, Sébastien Bobinet and Eméline Chavez have added momentum to the revitalisation of Saumur-Champigny. While Sébastien has long been regarded as a rising star of the region, his collaboration with Eméline since 2011—a talent in her own right—has cemented the cult status of the domaine’s wines.
The Greta Carbo—their cult wine—comes from a single parcel cuvée that is made using carbonic maceration, which gives a unique identity to this wine. Vegetal, fruity and peppery.
