Domaine de la Chanteleuserie Bourgueil 2008 Cabernet Franc, $14.99-$16.99, 86 points, appears bright ruby in color and trends purple toward the transparent rim.
Nearly mute, the only hints of aroma I could get were plum and red grape.
This light to medium bodied red wine has fair acidity and mild tannin.
Though the flavors of dried herbs, licorice, and plum are good, they are a bit weak and undistinguished.
A long trailing and descending palate makes-up the finish. The 12% alcohol is nearly unnoticeable.
Though I had no problem sipping this wine by its lonesome, I'd describe this as a red-table wine.
