Domaine Pierre Menard

Pierre Menard Apollo 2018

$ 54.50

An unusual and original wine. This is Cabernet Franc that was too ripe due to a heat spike in 2018 to go into his Orion bottling. The grapes were allowed to dry on racks in a warm area without humidity. They were then pressed at 20degrees alcohol very slowly and then fermented for 2 years in stainless steel tank. Think a lighter Banyuls. A tribute to his time spent working in Portugal and Hungary.
