Franck Balthazar Cornas Sans Soufre Ajoute
Region: Northern Rhone
Working as naturally as possible, Cornas based Franck Balthazar makes some of the finest Rhone wines we know. Vines are grown organically and worked by horse, fermentation is whole bunch with indigenous yeasts as sulphur is kept to an absolute minimum, and in this case not used at all.
His Cornas, made without added sulphur, is silky, vibrant and very long with cracked pepper, raspberry, violet and savoury black olive notes.
