Lower ABV Very much the kind if wine that has us so very excited to be working with importer Mary Taylor. The Agenais IGT region overlaps the "better known" AOCs of Buzet and Cotes de Duras in the Lot-et-Garonne Department. Ok, let's make it easier- it's about 80 miles south of Bordeaux. Cabernet Franc and Sauvigon Blanc grow wild here and it was likely here in the 17th Century that the two varietals crossed to produce Cabernet Sauvignon.
So Christophe Avi makes his pink wine from the traditional grapes of Agenais, Cabernet Franc (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (80%). Picked fresh (13.0% alcohol) for rose and aged a bit in old casks, this is redolent of red currants, fresh cherry, tangy watermelon, orange blossom and lime leaf. It feels generous in the middle and finishes with dusty minerality and a nice sense of grip. It's fun to drink, refreshingly dry, and a heck of a deal.
