January Wine Pick: Bouqueteau Traditional Chinon 2012

This WINE PICK of the month was written for the Luke's of Cape Cod website.

In my opinion there’s no other single varietal more satisfying than a Cabernet Franc done right. Admittedly they’re not done right very often, but this one sure is. In France's Loire Valley there’s a commune called Chinon and Cabernet Franc, a parent of Cabernet Sauvignon, is pretty much what they do. The thing that fascinates me about Cabernet Franc is its aroma. I could just smell it all day, not have a single sip and be completely happy. Bouqueteau’s nose has violets, fresh tomato leaves, red bell pepper, ice-melt salt and beach sand.
