Fabrice Gasnier Signature 2012 Loire, France
The beauty of the Cabernet Franc is fully expressed in Fabrice’s Signature wine. Classy aromas of black fruits with spicy and toasty notes. Silky tannins and refined acidity with hints of mineral and a long liquorice finish. This is a keeper but you can also enjoy it now with red meat, game or cheese.
About the winemaker
The Domaine Fabrice Gasnier is located in the commune of Cravant-les-Coteaux in the Chinon appellation, in the Loire Valley, France. Fabrice’s great-grandfather owned three hectares of vine while his father took over in 1966. Fabrice joined the family domain in 1990, at the tender age of 21, after he had gained some experience in Bordeaux, Champagne and Burgundy. Fabrice works his 27 hectares of land biodynamically. His vines of Cabernet Franc, grown on gravelly and on sand-clay soils, benefit from a southern exposure. Fabrice also makes a rare and delicious white Chinon from Chenin Blanc grapes.
