Saumur-Champigny, Loire Valley, France
Bruno Dubois is a serious natural wine-maker from the Loire Valley. He has a deep passion for his land and the harmony of the earth. He not only set up beehives around his property to foster energy interaction, he installed perches for birds to flush out caterpillars, he established shelters for bats to get rid of other harmful insects and also planted trees and plants around the vineyard to foster a diversity of wildlife. This Cabernet Franc seduces the nose with aromas of raspberry, pink peppercorn and plum with flavors of dried strawberry, crushed stone and the familiar bell pepper.
