The Boucard family farms 10 acres of cabernet franc on a tuffeau hillside near their cellars, the vines planted in 1971. Thierry Boucard ferments this wine in oak vats, breaking the cap by foot-treading it once a day. The wine points up the floral notes of cabernet franc while its tannins capture the minerality of a great Touraine red. Brisk wild red berry and tobacco scents course through it with a purity of fruit that’s striking. Lovely to drink now, this wine’s length of fruit and mineral flavor indicate it will age much longer than the price would suggest.
