La Giraudiere Clos des Meuniers Saumur-Champigny 2010: top stuff for
cabernet franc, with its Euro complexity. Ignore the Bronze medal decal…
– It’s better than that. +290122, $16.95, QPR: 89.
John Szabo, MSA.
Light, lean, herbal, savory example of Loire cabernet franc, with juicy acids, light but firm tannins, and flavours well within the normal range for the grape/region. Standard classic; serve slightly chilled. Tasted August 2012. Value Rating: **
