Loire Red Wines

A selection of red wines from the Loire region of France

There are not that many producers of red wine in the Loire region of France as the main success comes from the white wines. Cabernet Franc is produced in this region with very high praise in the small Chinon and Bougueil appellations. These wines tend to be lighter in style and incredibly aromatic. Cabernet Franc from the Loire Valley almost resembles Pinot Noir in color and texture, but exudes the most mind-blowing herbal and mineral notes.

We recommend the wines from Domaine Lavigne who specialise in Cabernet Franc with their Saumur Champigny Vielle Vignes. Just because the region doen't produce much red wine doesn't mean it should be ignored though. Often there are little gems hidden and the red from Domain Lavigne is one of those hidden gems that really should be tried and loved.
