If you read French, you can see what for yourself what the Guide Hachette
has to say about the lovely pure Cabernet Franc "Les Puys"
that we buy from Wilfrid Rousse
in Chinon. (We do have the 2006 vintage reviewed as well as the 04 shown online).
If not, take it from me it's a great wine, getting its just desserts from the prestigious wine guide: not too heavy, with the curranty fruit of Cabernets and the particular pencil-shavingy nuances of Cab. Franc. Tannins? Yes, but smooth and fine and contributory to that muscular voluptuousness that heftier wines often fail to achieve.
