2017 Loïc Mahé Vents d’Ouest Cabernet Franc
Starting from scratch, Loïc Mahé has been building up his Savennières estate for the last twenty years. Farming biodynamic since the beginning Loïc's wines are exceptional - concentrated and complex, a new benchmark for the appellation.
The Vents d’Ouest comes from the relatively unknown Loire Valley sub-region of Coteau d’Ancenis, a place known for creating juicy, elegant reds. This one sits supremely happily in between serious and slippery, perfect Bistro Wine. Herbaceous Cab Franc enrobed in red fruits and enough tannin to hang out with a rich meal. Bring on the steak and fries.
