Timothee Delalle, 'Le Four Blanc' Rouge 2020Regular price $25.00 Save $-25.00
Variety: Cabernet Franc
Timothee Delalle is a new producer in the Loire Valley. He trained for years in Geneva, Switzerland as well as under the late Loire winemaker, Jacky Blot of Tailles Aux Loups and Domaine de la Butte. Home is a vineyard just west of the city of Tours and Vouvray in the Loire Valley. He makes just 8000 bottles of wine a year and they quickly sell out! He makes excellent examples of the standard varieties grown in the Loire. One of the most talked about winemakers in France at the moment, we clearly have much to expect still from Timothee Delalle. “My objective is to support winemaking rather than to control it.”
This Cabernet Franc is planted in clay and limestone soils and aged in Burgundy barrels. The cost of this bottle is deceiving as the wine far over delivers. The wine is light on its feet and quite food friendly.
