World’s End Against the Wind Reserve Cabernet Franc 2009
Filled with floral, herbal, black raspberry, coffee and brown sugar aromas. This deeply colored Cabernet Franc is also a sight to behold. As vignerons from Saint Emilion we’re well known for producing the highest expression of Cabernet Franc in Bordeaux with our wine, Le Dôme. This wine is the direct production of grapes from Sugarloaf Mountain and Coombsville – both vineyards based on slopes – in the former’s case mainly south facing.
Described by Robert Parker as a ‘visionary, self-styled revolutionary’ and the ‘English winemaking guru,’ Jonathan Maltus cut his teeth in the fine wine business during the ‘garage revolution’ in Saint Emilion, France during the 1990’s. Chateau Teyssier, a Saint Emilion Grand Cru Estate, has expanded from 14 to 125 acres, into one of the main players of Saint Emilion (capturing three 5 Stars from Decanter with the 2010 vintage – including its flagship wine, Le Dôme).
