2014 Saint-Emilion grand cru chateau Franc Le Maine
The 2014 Franc le Maine has a deep purple colour, the high amount of Cabernet franc in the wine gives it a lovely freshness on the nose. It’s energetic and expressive.On the palate it’s balanced with velvety tannins and a very good length.The 2014 is ready to drink now but can easily age another 5 years.
Roger Bardet passed on to his son Philippe a passion for growing wine, a taste for doing work well and a deep respect for the estate.
In 2008, Philippe took over Château Franc le Maine, another Saint-Emilion Grand Cru.“A subtle blend of technical innovations and environmental practices designed to reveal the treasure within our terroir.” Vignobles Bardet uses inventive practices that respect the natur.
They seek to reduce the impact of their activities on the environment by adopting practices that protect nature's balances, such as using grass as a cover crop between the rows of vines, developing hedging around the different plots to reconstitute natural ecosystems, maintaining a weather station to observe local weather patterns afecting the vines, strictly sorting waste and exploiting geothermal energy.
