"Les Poyeux" Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2021

Very nice extremely drinkable red. Caught my eye as last time we had a wine from Les Poyeux was a Clos Rougeard at Commander’s Palace in New Orleans. This was at Balthazar. Definitely on the more glou glou side of things - but quite enjoyable. And a nice pairing with a frisée lardon, halibut, and a steak au poivre. — a month ago

La Charpentrie Saumur Rouge Cabernet Franc 2017


Super young and took a while to open up. Shy nose of blue flowers, black pepper, baking spices, black currant. More expressive mid palate if a little too tannic. Dark cherries, blackberries, pepper. Cuts a little short in the finish but an amazing effort that will clearly benefit from aging. Not quite a Close rougeard but good stuff. — 2 years ago

"Brézé" Saumur Chenin Blanc 2015

Wonderful complex and luxurious aromas of lemon, yellow apples and oak. A bit rounded in the edges, acidity not hitting hard initially, but rather catching up after each sip. Super finish. — 3 months ago

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc


Incredible as usual. Black pepper, tobacco, barnyard, province herbs, lingonberries, hint of leather on the nose. Very fresh and juicy and yet complex and long. Great wine. — 5 months ago
