    Irouleguy, France

    🍇Cabernet Franc, Tannat

    Terroir driven wine from Irouleguy. Herbaceous green, fruity/ jammy, soft tannin and soft body with a little weight, the most complex cab franc in our shop. And from Basque Country.

    "Peio Espil, the grandson of vignerons, started Ilarria in the 1980s, painstakingly constructing terraces on precipitous limestone slopes so he could plant vines. He is a follower of the Japanese agronomist Masanobu Fukuoka, who before his death in 2008 preached a hands-off style of farming that paradoxically requires constant vigilance in the vineyard.' - The New York Times
