Franck Balthazar Cotes du Rhone 2016 750ml

The wines express their place faithfully with tender winemaking in support. Old vine fruit is a key contributor. A classic example of Cornas that carries clear fruit and early tannins requiring 3-4 years to settle. There are four bottlings each vintage, so cask ageing time can vary. Franck has worked organically since 2010 and this status became official in 2013. In 2013 he planted Roussanne on 0.3 hectare at Saint-Péray, close to Cornas. Since 2012 Franck has also produced 2,400 bottles of SO2 free Cornas, made from young vines. -
