Christophe Foucher, the sole person behind the radically humble and transcendent La Lunotte wines, consistently makes some of the most solid and exciting wines I adore coming back to vintage after vintage.
"A wine that's made in tiny quantities from a small parcel of Cabernet Franc. In 2022 he kept it simple, destemming the fruit and letting it macerate for a few weeks before ageing in tank. It's a beautifully open wine, bright with dark autumnal fruit, satin-like tannins and wonderful depth. Perfect with a wintery stew. Will also age wonderfully."
