2020 Domaine Bobinet Hanami Cabernet Franc

Loire Valley, France

Perky natural Cabernet Franc from the Loire made for imminent quaffing, with a wild herbal edge to the funky red fruit.

About This Wine

Bobinet evens sounds like a fun name for a person, let alone a bouncy fun natural red wine...

Nothing added Cabernet Franc for pretty immediate drinking. Lightly-bodied, tangy red-fruited and there are all kinds of grass, florals and herbs figure in an aromatic whirlpool.

Energetic but on the wilder side of natty wine. Could take a chill for sure.

About Domaine Bobinet

Started in 2002, when Sebastien Bobinet took over 1.8 hectares of vines and the cellar from his grandparents, Domaine Bobinet is leading the way to a more sustainable winemaking future in Saumur.

A 7th-generation winemaker in this region of the Loire Valley, Sebastian has long been regarded as a star of the region.

When in 2011 his partner Emeline Calvez joined the domaine, that cult status was further cemented.

With only 2 hectares of old-vine Cabernet Franc and Chenin Blanc, inherited from his grandfather, they also source small amounts of fruit from neighbouring organic vineyards.

From The Importer

Hanami is Bobinet's “vin de soif,” a wine to drink in its youth, to enjoy its fruity and fragrant character. Made from several parcels of Cabernet Franc (35-45 years of age), it is vinified through both traditional and Carbonic maceration with the goal of preserving the aromas of fresh grape juice and then aged for 4 month sandstone and concrete jars. Can be consumed slightly chilled.

Blend : Cabernet Franc (100%)
Closure : Cork
Drink Until : 2025

    Great vino for the price

    Enjoyed this! Really interesting cab franc - the herbal/savoury notes are great. Would be a good food wine with duck or lamb, or chill it for picnic vino

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
