Domaine du Bel Air

Jour de Soif is made from 100% Cabernet Franc from 20 year old vines. Harvest is manual, as is sorting the grapes once they arrive in cellar. They de-stem the grapes prior to an indigenous yeast fermentation, temperature controlled, for about 6 days in stainless steel. They use 100% free-run juice (not pressed) and age the wine in tank for 6-8 months. It is bottled unfiltered.

Wine Spectator

A gutsy, mouthfilling style, this displays chestnut, tobacco and roasted fig flavors laid over notes of extra bittersweet cocoa and dark olive. The long finish has nice, chalky grip. Best from 2013 through 2015.

Score: 91. —James Molesworth, February 29, 2012.
