The Révélation 2011 Cabernet/Merlot blend from Badet, Clement, & Cie. Is just what I want in an inexensive French wine. It takes a bit of patience to get to know it. Let this one breathe for about 30 minutes or you will catch a bit of bitterness (French, you know). It had that really great Frenchiness that comes for the soil. It has wonderful fruit without being fruity. It has acid without being too acidic. It is not subtle. It has a definite présence. I balanced this one with the sweetenss of honeycrisp apples and blackberries, but I could have paired it with just about anything and it would have worked. Sucker for French wine that I am, I will give it 4 stars.
