2019 Domaine Mosse Cabernet Franc

This Mosse wine is very silky and called Cabernet Franc, 80% traditional macerated destemmed grapes and 20% carbonic maceration for almost a week. They were pressed separately but aged together.

It was in the bottle for one year before release, which has ensured the tannins are beautifully integrated. A Vin de France made with grapes from some of the vines that would have traditionally been in the Anjou Rouge. (They have eschewed the appellation system now for almost all of their wines.)
