Description of the wine and the idea that I would like the label to express :
This is a small batch of handcrafted French wine made in a natural way (just grapes - nothing added)
This is a 100% Cabernet Franc made in the region of Bordeaux (unusual as Bordeaux wines are mostly blends of Merlot - Cab Sauvignon and Cab Franc).
The appellation is Sainte-Foy Côtes de Bordeaux but I don't want this appearing on the front label (only on back label)
The focus is on the name and the fact that it is a 100% Cab Franc. This is a French wine so no writing in English please.
Without writing it, I want this label to look like it's a natural wine and not a premium luxury wine. This wine will retail for a decent price, it's not a industrial wine masking poor quality by great marketing. This is a wine with a story to tell.
I want this label to be very different to the traditional Bordeaux label style. I do not want an old fashioned label nor a trendy one (this label will be used for some time, it's not a marketing stunt).
Why "La Franc Touch"?
La Franc Touch is a reference to "La French Touch". The word Franc replaces French and is for both "Cabernet Franc" and my name and nickname Franc.
I would like my name to appear on it : Pierre Franc de Ferrière, but not as the center part : Just big enough to be visible but discrete. My name will be the only writing that will appear on all wines I will be making in the future.
I am very open to a design that emphasizes the name La Franc Touch although I have no clue what to expect. As it's a small batch (around 2000 bottles) you could possibly include the bottle number (ex: 47/2000).
Please do not try to make a traditional style label. I am a young winemaker breaking the rules of traditional Bordeaux winemaking. But do not go too far, I don't want people to think that the wine and the label have nothing in common.
Here are the key words to remember : Young/refreshing - French - natural - 100% Cab Franc - handcrafted - against the cliché
