This wine is made in TINY quantities. Avid readers, do not roll your eyes! I realize this phrase comes up quite a bit in our newsletters (and for good reason), but this wine truly embodies rarity. A vineyard's size is usually the primary reason for a wine's limited production. Not the case in today's offer. This wine is Thierry Germain's special selection of very old vine Cabernet Franc. Old vines mean less rigor, leading to minuscule amounts of fruit per vine. In this case, a mere 15 hectoliters per hectare. For comparison, Bordeaux's prestigious Cabernet Franc estate, Château Cheval Blanc's vines produce 45 hectoliters per hectare.
