Fritz Waßmer Cuvée Felix Cabernet Franc - Merlot 

It takes a lot of courage to plant Cabernet Franc and Merlot in the Markgräflerland, as the usual vineyards are limited to the Burgundian varieties and Chasselas. That’s why, 15 years ago, the idea of ​​planting Mediterranean vines here was met with wide scepticism. For quite some time now the Cuvée Felix stood out as one of the flagships of this winery. Over the years this noble Bordeaux blend, garnered a solid growing appraisal. A mature wine with aromas of cassis, chocolate and vanilla which is ​​very dense and opulent with a fine structure and elegant tannins. This is not your typical German red wine and pairs extremely well with strong meat dishes or game.

Tasting Notes

Smooth dark fruit and a pinch of sweet, green herbs tickle the nose. On the palate it is strong and grippy with appetizing ""cool"" black tea tannins and a lot of fruity wild berry aromas and spicy notes. Delicious freshness and a long finish are already extremely enjoyable to drink. The structure, the density of the fruit and the freshness underline the great potential of this wine.

Grape variety: Cabernet Franc & Merlot. 

Serving temperature: approx. 18°C.
