FX Barc Complices de Loire

A selection of wonderful wines from Francois Xavier's  winery in St Nicolas de Bourgueil in the Loire Valley.

The wines comprise of a wonderful bright fresh and dry Chenin Blanc; a perfect partner to cheeses,  2 Organic Cabernet Francs from Bourgueil and Saumur Champigny, and a rarely seen Cot.

The Bourgueil is fresh delicate and fragrant with lots of raspberry and floral notes , and the Saumur Champigny is loaded with forest floor and blueberry notes with a richer palate to partner charcuterie or a Sunday roast!

The Cot is a very special wine. Matured firstly in Amphora so soften and tame the tight, intense Cot ( Malbec) fruit, the wine is then transferred to old barrels to add complexity as it matures over a period of time, this released as a  raw fruit laden beast.

These are wines that show the modern edge the Loire now shows . Bright pure and beautifully balanced.
