Calvez-Bobinet 'Piak! Blanc' 2021
Thirst, Beware! Here comes Piak!
Grape: Cabernet Franc
Region: Loire Valley, France
Piak! Blanc is for the perpetually parched, a blushing white wine named after the sound your mouth makes when your thirst is finally quenched, the French equivalent of an Alyssa Edwards tongue pop! From Saumur superstars Émeline Calvez and Sébastien Bobinet of the newly-rebranded Calvez-Bobinet, Piak! Blanc gives dark-skinned Cabernet Franc a whole new lease on life, vinified as a blanc de noirs with a touch more colour than previous vintages, like a drop of raspberry and peach syrup in a green tea lemonade.
Eighth-generation vigneron Sebastien Bobinet and his talented winemaker (and wife) Emeline Calvez make show-stopping wines in Saumur, the heart of Loire Valley. Here Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc are the stars of the show. Alive, precise, and compelling wines.
