? vintage Yves Guegniard Evanescence Anjou-Villages
july 15, 2011: i'm catching up on some postings from this summer, when i was in france visiting family. we picked up this unknown vintage yves guegniard evanescence in a wine shop in dinard, across the harbor from st. malo, where my mom grew up (and where my grandmother still resides, intermuros). we had this cabernet franc with sauteed sole from a local fresh market. this red had more of a nose when it warmed up. as inarticulate as it sounds, for some odd reason cabernet francs always remind me of the scent of crayons. this anjou had definite tannins. my parents aren't big fans of cabernet franc, but they were willing to take a break from white wines that evening to let me explore the varietal a bit more. didn't get the alcohol percentage. these are old notes!
