Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon
Benoit Daridan took over the family winery in 2001 after many years of study and work experience around the world. As the seventh generation to take over the small 15 hectare farm, Benoit has worked tirelessly to protect and promote the family traditions of passion for the regions terror. The vineyard is perfectly positioned between arguably the Loire Valley’s most two most famous properties: Chateau de Cheverny and Chateau de Chambord. While most of the vineyard is made up of young vines, they do pride themselves on a tiny two hectare plot of 50 year old vines.
This is Cabernet Sauvignon from the Loire Valley clocking in at just 11.5% alcohol. It’s fresh and fruity, though expect some leather and earthy, too. It’s likely to be unlike any Cabernet Sauvignon you may have ever had. This comes from a line of wines called “The ‘D’ of Daridan.”
