Marissa Ross of Bon Ap. likes her Babass with a party sub her husband makes with homemade ‘nduja, mozzarella, arugula, and zucchini. (I'm drooling). This wine doesn't immediately scream summer, but sometimes I just don't want straight glouglou and this is definitely not that. Earth, fruit, tobacco leaf, smashed blueberries, jalapeno, minerality, a bit of funk. all the things.
Natural 100% Cabernet Franc by Sébastien Dervieux.
Ambient yeast fermentation in a barn with no temp. control (exposing the wine to the Loire's temperature changes)
