Overview

Corail is 100% Cabernet Franc grown and cropped at low yields from chalky, clay-limestone soils. Corail is pressed slowly and gently to obtain its pale salmon color and ferments in stainless steel tanks before bottling and aging on the lees for 12 months before disgorgement. Corail has a slightly higher dosage than the Crémants from Grenelle in order to emphasize the delicate fruit flavors of the Cabernet Franc.
