La Niverdière - Resilience 2015
(Chinon, Loire Valley, France)
From a hallowed parcel of 75-year-old vines, Resilience is the pinnacle of the estates production. These tree-like plants in this jungle of a vineyard provide a tiny amount of fruit of the highest concentration and flavour, used to produce a layered, complex, and age-worthy wine. Here we are happy to present the very first vintage made here, which is absolutely singing with brambly fruits, deep, earthy spices, and trademark salinity on the finish. One to enjoy and watch evolve over a long evening.
A pure and energetic Cabernet Franc from one of the region's up and coming talents. Martine Budé's wines have such a distinct delicate touch, and are the epitome of purity. Juicy dark fruits with savoury notes, a soft structure, and a long spicy finish
