There is perhaps no French red more underrated than a solid, everyday Cab Franc. That charming bit of spice and earth on the finish, with the lift of a good Beaujolais makes for an incredible food wine.
This sprightly, vivacious young Loire Valley Cabernet Franc should be the next wine to hit your weekly rotation. Bright peppery notes grab you on the nose, but you’ll be charmed by the silky, minerally fruit on the palate. Coudraie’s 2015 Anjou Rouge will pair beautifully with just about anything that hits your table. From roast chicken to pâté to grilled fish, add this gem to your arsenal.
