This uniquely delicious and refined red wine from France's Loire Valley is £12.95 from Yapp Bros at Mere in Wiltshire, a region in which Yapps has long specialised. Made from the cabernet franc grape, this vivid wine has the grape's trademark wholesomely fresh, summer-red-berry aroma. The fruit is remarkably bright, crisp and juicy, with stirring meadow-fresh lushness right through to the textbook dry edge. I would serve this wine gently chilled with saucy fish dishes, poultry or charcuterie. It's a discovery and an inspiring introduction to some of the most distinctive red wines of France.
