100% Cabernet France
Maquis "Franco" Cabernet Franc is Chile's great Cabernet Franc. Under the guidance of renowned master blender, Jacques Boissenot, Maquis has produced a 100% Cabernet Franc that is not only an elegant wine to drink now, but will transform as it ages over the next 20 years. The unique seasonal conditions and soils of the Colchagua Valley help to produce a wine with great aromatic intensity and complexity.
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Franco is Cabernet Franc, a serious wine with some austerity, a sense of earth and minerals, a texture or a feeling more than a flavor. It is intense, powerful, with strong personality, combining power and finesse, very good balance, acidity and freshness. Structured but juicy. This is the third vintage for this superb Cabernet Franc from a warm climate. It has finesse and balance, with an Audrey Hepburn kind of complexity and elegance. It’s approachable now, but should also age well. Drink now-2020.

With its compact nose of blackberry and cassis aromas, this wine comes across as ripe and modern. In the mouth, it’s round, bouncy, tannic and exuberant, but not overdone. Flavors of blackberry and fig are smooth, while the finish is rich and ready. Editors' Choice.
