Bois Guyon. Francois Saint-Lo 2016 (Loire Valley, France)
Single vineyard Cab Franc, hand harvested and fermented 100% whole cluster for 10 days before pressing off manually with a basket press over the course of 4 days (that's really slow!) into old Austrian barrels that he bought from Clos Crystal, where he worked for a couple of years with Eric Dubois. Then the juice stays in these barrels and ferments for 2 years (that's really long!). When Francois thinks it's ready, he bottles unfiltered with no sulfur added. Light on it's feet, but nice depth and complexity with medium tannins and a lipsmacking finish. Decant this for 2 hours+ and you will be handsomely rewarded.
