Domaine Pierre Menard
Pierre Menard Orion Alpha Cabernet Franc 2021
The Orion Alpha Cabernet Franc (100%) hails from two plots: one with younger vines, and the other with some very old vines of 65 years at the lower part of the slopes of Clos des Mailles.
This marriage between young and old, between fresh vibrance and rich complexity, make the Orion Alpha an utterly satisfying Cabernet Franc, one that will age well for many years to come!
Well worth the wait, if you can handle it.
Maceration after destemming for about three weeks, spontaneous fermentation in barrels. No fining or filtration.
