Clos Rougeard

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2012

Moins top que la dernière bouteille, du poivron rouge et des notes végétales nobles mais la magie Rougeard n’est pas tout à fait au RV. Manque un peu de profondeur cette bouteille.

Lacks the usual depth despite the red peppers and “noble” vegetal aromas, bottle mot as good as the last one i had of this 2012.

Les Motelles Saumur Cabernet Franc 2009

Category defining Cabernet Franc here from who in my mind makes the top CF in the Loire for the $. Not cheap but it ain't Rougeard $ and per dollar better. Burgundian in so many ways but true to the CF grape...texturallly as fine as silk, fresh, excellent length. — 4 months ago

Le Clos Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2012

What a nice bottle, classy and elegant vegetal and green pepper notes that only Rougeard can do as a signature. Everything is there, class, texture, contained power, fruit, length, balance, gorgeous.

Quel beau vin! Des notes végétales avec classe et élégance, on retrouve cela chez Rougeard seulement. Un vin savoureux, du fruit, des notes fines de poivron mais à peine, longueur, volume, texture, tout y est malgré un millésime moyen.. 93-94

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. — a month ago
