From vineyards planted on the south bank of the Loire around the historic castle town of Saumur, the Les Nivières is made from 100% Cabernet Franc grapes grown on the sand and limestone slopes of the region.

Pleasant red

This is a very drinkable red. Drank it accompanying steak then finished the bottle.

Dry and undrinkable

Received as part of a meal deal, assumed it would be standard, easy drinking wine. Both me and my husband agreed it was over dry and unpalatable. Poured it down the sink.

Classic red from the Loire

This is a very nice example of the lighter reds from the Loire valley. Made from Cabernet Franc only, it's a balanced wine that is refreshing if slightly chilled and full of flavour as well. Quite common in France, this is a great wine to pair with food, unlike some new world reds that can be overpowering. Well worth trying and I keep buying it!

weird peppery taste

Not sure if we received an off bottle but the cork was soggy and the taste felt off, two days after delivery. Poured down the drain.
