Sébastien David makes deliciously crunchy Cabernet Franc from his vineyards situated on the limestone-clay and gravels of the Loire.

He has a total of around 15 hectares, all family owned, spread across Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil so as to avoid the risk of localised frost. Eschewing chemicals and working without sulphur in the winery he makes a gratifying aromatic red. His family have always worked organically, and Sebastien also employs some biodynamic preparations. He also experiments with various amphorae and clay eggs, as well as traditional foudres.

    The roads were closing all around us. No trains north or south. The burns were raging torrents; pictures of abandoned vehicles, threatened bridges and submerged acres were filling my Facebook feed. The rain had been coming down now for seven days.
    January 2016; Aberdeenshire.
    What to do?……open a bottle of Rob’s wine to accompany the French onion tart prepared by Jane using free range eggs and gluten free pastry. Add baby leaf salad with some pea shoots. Put another log on the wood burner and some Bill Evans on the hi-fi.
    The L’Hurluberlu was delicious. It was fresh, tangy, with just a faint hint of fizz. Fruity and a touch of liquorice, it cut the eggs and onions. Low sulphites too.
    Crisis, what crisis?

    This wine is particularly special in that I do not experience any sensitivity issues as other wines. It is truly natural.o

    Left to air for a while in a decanter whilst cooking, i genuinely laughed with delight at the taste of this wine when finally sitting down with my meal. (Home cooked Sourdough Pizza, topped with various meats and cheeses – recommended with this wine).
    You can taste the fruits added to this and as you progress through the bottle, it becomes more apparent and settled the more you drink through. I had this at room temperature (half a bottle) the first session, 2nd time around slightly cooled as suggested. It made no massive difference to the taste or experience to be honest, however one thing did occur as i got closer to the bottom and the bottle emptied out.
    As i pour the remainder wine in to the decanter, there was some fruit skin inside the bottle bits of fruit sediment around the glass. From this, i found that as the wine settled and aired, the fruit flavours were more apparent as the bottle went on, and hence became even nicer to drink.. I really enjoyed drinking this and would highly recommended it, i will be buying this again.

    There’s an episode of the Peep show where Jeremy says the wine he’s drinking is nice, “but not actually nice like hot chocolate or coke, but nice for wine”.

    This is a wine for Jeremy. Delicious, and probably not worth thinking about too much. Though it absolutely does need to be chilled.

    This is an easy light wine that is perfect to stick in the fridge for a little bit. Great by itself but would also pair well.
