Domaine du Mortier is the work of brothers Cyril and Fabien Boisard, who weren't from a winemaking family, but fell in love with the whole shebang when their dad purchased a farm with half a hectare of grapes. Since creating the Domaine in 1996, they've been dedicated to organic and biodynamic principles. This lovely Loire Valley Cabernet Franc is a really great food wine for all kinds of cuisine, but especially red meat or a vegetable stew (maybe even a ratatouille!). It's light, with smooth tannins and aromas of red fruits. Smashable and good value!
