While this wine is a few pounds more expensive than the others it was the first one onto this page in terms of sheer ‘wow’ appeal. Regular readers will know I adore ripe Cabernet Franc and 2015 was a stunning vintage in the Loire. Joguet is a winery I have followed for 30 years and so there was every chance this would be a star. I did not expect an extra dimension of fruit and earth coupled with a devilish swagger – turning this wine from a success into a screamer!
