Rochelles' L' Ardoise + 100 AWEsome Wines

Following on from my Saturday post on the 2014 Les Chiens Chiens, Chinon from Domaine de la Noblaie, I tried this softly delicious L'Ardoise (AC Anjou) from Domaine des Rochelles. Deep coloured with dangerously attractive black fruits, this 2014 is already extremely seductive. Admittedly this cuvée, which is mainly Cabernet Franc with a small part of Cabernet Sauvignon, is intended for early drinking. At the moment it is certainly hitting the spot!
