Cabernet Franc in a pure, fruity style, that is what Château Soucherie strives for with these 'Reliefs'. The wine is a blend of largely Cabernet Franc supplemented with approximately 10% of the local Grolleau. The grapes grow on 35-year-old vines on a stony soil with a slate subsoil. Grolleau or Grolleau noir is a red French wine grape variety grown mainly in the Loire Valley in France. The name is derived from the French word grolle, meaning "crow" and is said to reflect the deep black berries of the Grolleau vine

After the manual harvest, the grapes are gently crushed, followed by fermentation on the skins for approximately 3 weeks (10 days for the Grolleau). This gives the wine a juicy, fruity character. After fermentation, the wine matures for another 9 months on the lees. The Relief is a wonderfully fruity wine with aromas of juicy strawberries and cherries, supplemented with an attractive touch of greenish notes that give the wine some tension. Juicy and thirst-quenching in taste, with a fine structure. This is a Loire Cabernet Franc for the "Beaujolais Vin de Soif lover". Also very tasty slightly chilled.
