Three beautiful reds, three beautiful Cabernet Franc's, three beautiful examples of the Loire Valley, three beautiful Bobinet's!
Three beautiful reds, three beautiful Cabernet Franc's, three beautiful examples of the Loire Valley, three beautiful Bobinet's!

Cabernet Franc | Sébastien Bobinet and Eméline Calvez helped to raise the natural wine movement in the Loire Valley and remain a benchmark for the region, especially when it comes to ever-classic Cab Franc. Amateus Bobi is their “historic” cuvée and Sébastien’s first – a wise, muscular & age-worthy single-estate cuvée that’s moody, intellectual & even a little bit mean! But in a cool way, like a snappy professor who just doesn’t have time for your shenanigans. Aged for a year in barrel, this is the more robust and mineral-rich side of Cab Franc, a study in the difference between strength and power – dried sage, blueberry trail mix, hot chocolate powder & soy-soaked enoki mushroom. Pairs perfectly with: scratchy tartan flannel, Rear Window & splurging on a full set of vintage leather-bound encyclopedias because you saw Amy Schneider on Jeopardy and see a bright future for yourself in trivia.

Cabernet Franc | Les Landes is the lovable curmudgeon of the Bobinet line-up of Cab Francs, a rustic & earthy red that’s a bit grumpy but will surprise you with its warmth and generosity. Hailing from a 55 year old vineyard with extremely low-yielding vines, depth & concentration is top of mind for this earthy and rugged red, inspired by old-school Cab Francs of the past. Aged in new and old oak barriques for 18 months, illustrious flavours are on full-display – smoked cherry, cigar box, vintage leather chair, flowering tobacco leaf, cedar chest & a giant, old-school library stuffed with dusty, leather-bound books. The texture is incredibly buttery for a red, like a dramatic swoop of plum butter on a perfect white plate, followed by rustic, earthy tannins with a touch of smoke. Take this and a friend to the park on a hot summer night and let the wine light the way.

Cabernet Franc | If only the real Greta Garbo had lived long enough to see & appreciate this stunning, vivacious red from Sébastien and Eméline of Domaine Bobinet. Just like Garbo, Carbo is a legend, an infamous cult wine with an unattainable elegance that unites wine snobs & everyday drinkers alike. Carbo is, of course, a nod to carbonic maceration, the mode of vinification used to give this single-parcel Cab Franc its dazzlingly bright & luscious red fruit flavours, like a hyper-pigmented Cab Franc with the volume turned to a hair-raising 10. Hazy sandalwood incense meets a silky, glossy texture with whimsical depth from 60 year old vines and eight months in old oak. Vegetal, fruity and peppery all at once, this is captivating & spellbinding, rich & refined, an engrossing experience to share only with those who Get It. Cab Franc’s signature greenness shows up to the party, followed by a dash of black pepper, cherry lollipop, strawberry Twizzler, forest, filth & squishy mud between your toes. Pairs perfectly with black velvet, water signs & sapphires thrown into the ocean. Drink on the night of the full moon.
