Laurent Saillard Joyfull
Region: Loire Valley
Grapes: Cabernet Franc
Laurent Saillard is one of our favourite Loire winemakers. He moved to New York when he was younger, helping to open Balthazar and then starting one of the first natural wine bars in New York. He now has a vineyard in the Loire where he crafts natural wines with zero additions that have an immediate appeal but plenty of depth and complexity.
Joyfull is Laurent's lithe and ethereal Cabernet Franc with ripe raspberry, green pepper and liquorice aromas. Soft and silky on the palate with great drinkability at only 11.5%.
