Domaine L'Ecu 'Mephisto', Loire Valley, France 2015
L’Ecu say- “Full, flattering, round, expressive nose, on black fruits and red berries, blackberry, strawberry, redcurrant, notes of white pepper. Suave attack, tense but charming mid-palate, still tight but velvety tannins, good volume, rich, deep, delicate, chiseled fruit, notes of sweet spices. A wine vinified to sublimate and respect the Cabernet Franc, a certain idea of finesse and delicacy, no over-extraction in this bottle.”
Which is exactly what we were thinking.
Not nearly as scary as the label suggests!
