Our intrepid Loire buyer Keith scored with his discovery of Druet wines – I love all the vintages I’ve tried from this classic Bourgueil producer, and the 2000 is especially great. Herbaceous and as aromatic as you’d expect of a Cabernet Franc, this is not quite as green as the 1998 and less fruity than the plusher 2002 – it fits perfectly into the lineup as a balanced, complex option. Round raspberry fruit shines, with black pepper and earthiness through the palate, plus a long finish. And it already has age! A must try for fans of more adventurous reds.
