TASTE THE ORIGINAL CABERNET FRANC
Cabernet Franc’s ancestral home is in the Loire, which is in the north/west of France. By all standards, a cool climate wine region. The wine is usually tangy dry, medium-bodied and rustic. An appetizing food partner ““ a Bistro wine, but not a party drink. Certainly not a wow on the first sip. But traditional wines never are. They grow into the evening. With you, the food and the company.
Check out Petit Clocher with just about any food. An exciting hit of France at a reasonable price, and one of the most characterful reds at regular LCBOs. Lightly chill.

P.S. BEWARE! Another Loire Cabernet Franc (JOVLY 10 Chinon) is terrible. Feels like it’s doctored for crowd appeal with candy-cute flavours.
