April 2010 : Selection of Loire Cabernet Franc Ambassadors for the British Isles

Our regional corporation - InterLoire - has launded a selection of ambassador wines issued from Cabernet Franc for the UK market.

I am most than happy to learn that  Château de Targé 2008 has been selected amongst a half dozen of Saumur-Champigny as an ambassador. Because the British are known to reject a mean or lean, or over-extracted, aggressive wines. As says Sarah Ahmed, member of the jury :" producers are easing off extraction and use of oak to let the fruit fly and terroir talk."
