Bourgueil Clos de Pavée - Pierre Borel

Isabelle's thoughts on Clos de Pavée:

With Bourgueil, we find ourselves in the heartland of Cabernet Franc, home to some of the purest, finest examples that exist anywhere in the world. And Borel’s 2 hectares of Cabernet, grown on a gravelly hill, are no exception. Clos de Pavée is a very pretty wine that is all about elegance and the flavors of the dark - dark cocoa, black currant and a dash of savory meatiness (thanks to a touch of brett). It has chewy but silky tannins. I know Pierre mentions that the wine needs to be drunk now but for me it is a wine that, while delicious as it is, will also age beautifully over the next 3 to 4 years, developing truffle and woodland notes.
