March Wine Pick: Domaine Laroque Cité de Carcassonne 2015

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


Domaine Laroque Cité de Carcassonne 2015

My complete adoration of Cabernet Franc is no secret, and I've got a 100% Cab Franc right here that's both delicious and extremely affordable. It's from Domaine Laroque, located in the Cité de Carcassonne subregion of Languedoc-Roussillon in southern France.

The wine is crimson in color with aromas of red current, cranberry, tobacco and a slight smokiness. It's light bodied with soft tannin and a perky acidity, making this a red that you could slightly chill if you were so inclined. There's flavors of red current, cranberry, sweet herbs, and both black and green pepper. It finishes earthy, herbal and cranberry saucey.

Pair with lamb or an herb rubbed rib eye steak!
