Domaine de Mairan Cabernet Franc

Domaine de Mairan Cabernet Franc

New vintage!  This 100% Cabernet Franc wine from the Languedoc is light-bodied, with raspberry and tobacco notes.  The grape is widely planted in Virginia, and in more northerly parts of France, so try this southern French version -- with more fruit and spice.

About This Wine:

Domaine de Mairan is located on the site of an ancient Roman villa, and the property was also the birthplace and home of Jean-Jacques Dortous de Mairan, the celebrated 17th century physician, mathematician, philosopher, and academic. Jean-Baptiste Peitavy, the winemaker, is the seventh generation owner of Domaine de Marian, and took over production from his father and grandfather, who was the first winemaker in the region to introduce single-varietal Cabernet Franc wines. Today, the vineyard is frequently listed in the Guide Hachette and sells wine to restaurants throughout France. First Vine is the first importer to bring Domaine de Mairan wines to the U.S.

This is Jean-Baptiste’s take on his grandfather's Cabernet Franc. The grape is heavily planted in the Loire Valley and also in Virginia here in the U.S. It's less intensely flavored than Cabernet Sauvignon and tends to make lighter-bodied wines. What makes Cabernet Franc unique is a kind of bell-pepper flavor in the wine, along with lighter fruit, tobacco, and even some floral notes. The extent to which any of these predominates is a function of the soil and climate. Jean-Baptiste's vineyard is sunny and hot in the summer, which tends to bring out the fruit and tobacco. Plus he opts for a shorter fermentation, which also tends to make it a fruitier wine.
