SEBASTIEN BOBINET, CABERNET FRANC, 'GRETA CARBO CUVEE', SAUMUR, LOIRE VALLEY, FRANCE, 2011
These days there is a fair bit of hype and debate around the subject of "natural wine". What differentiates a natural wine from an organic wine? All natural wines are organic, however not all organic wines are natural. Simply put, natural wines are wines made with the least possible use of chemicals, additives and overly technological manipulations in wine making. Many feel that these interventions comprimise the individuality of the product and its ability to show expression the place it comes from - the terroir. But make no mistake - making natural wine is something that people have been doing for much longer than we have been able to read or write about it.
We are not here to debate for or against natural wine....we just happen to think that THIS one is delicious! Sebastien Bobinet is a producer of some of the tastiest, drinkable wines from the Saumur region in France's Loire Valley - and yes these wines are made naturally. The Greta Carbo Cuvee is 100% Cabernet Franc in its purest form. Food friendly, juicy, savoury and minerally charged, this wine is the full meal deal. Pair it up with anything from soft cheese and charcuterie to fleshy fish dishes, pork or poultry.
