2021 Franck Balthazar Cotes du Rhone
Franck Balthazar has been blessed with the laid-back demeanor necessary to crafting flawless cuvées, as well as with the opportunity to work a 97-year old parcel purchased from Noël Verset, retired Cornas icon. 75% Syrah, 25% Grenache. The grapes for this wine are sourced from three hectares next to Vinsobres dans la Drome, which will now be Franck's and is farmed organically. The winemaking occurs in stainless steel, fermentation with wild yeasts, no filtration and little SO2.
