Stands out with yellow label. Smells chalky and herbal. Bitter streak, with very tart under-ripe berries. — 2 days ago

Clos de L'Échelier Dampierre Sur Loire Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2021

Beautiful color of deep ruby and it looks thick and unctuous in the glass. Prominent spices on the nose- clove, bay leaves and fresh red fruits touch of Brett in a pleasant way. Spices carry through to the tongue. Good weight and body. Fine tannins. I'm glad this wasn't blended. It's a great expression of Cab Franc. — 3 months ago

Outre Terre Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2018

Light color and flavors. Think finesse. Tannins are light on day one and smooth on day two. Pleasure drinking wine for sure. TBL — 3 years ago

L'Insolite Saumur Chenin Blanc 2020

Um… Some might say this is subtle, but I’d say it’s precise. Clean, honey blossom, white tea, peach, Granny Smith apple and amazing acid. Wow. — 2 months ago

Clos Romans Saumur Chenin Blanc 2018

This wine makes me re-think what I know as Chenin Blanc.
It opens with a lot of lees/yeast. And wet rock minerality. Give it a few minutes for the fruits and florals to develop. Give it more minutes and it actually starts to smell like a Vouvray or savenniere - wax, wool and aged cheese.
Soaring acidity! (Ever bite into a Ranguapur lime?) But also body-oddy-oddy thanks to that yeast contact.

Not only enjoyable but also one that you want to pour many more glasses of t discover all the nuanced smells and flavors.

Don't chill it too much! You'll lose a lot of the subtleties.

L'Échelier Saumur Chenin Blanc 2018

Lyle Fass

Electric. So so electric. Floral, stones, minerals, some light white almond slices, wet rocks, so stoney. But pure and chiseled. Palate is terrific. Dense, chewy and my god the acid on this is majestic. Nimble and pure with such purity and length. Lemons are pretty much the only fruit but the minerals crush you. So elegant and textured, yet dynamic and massive. Really a wine of contrasts wherein the intrigue lies. What aromas. Best Roches Neuves white since 13 Clos Romans but this might be better. Thierry has always said ultimately this wine would be better than Clos Romans when the vines got old enough. I think 18 is first vintage where this is true. An unreal wine. — 3 years ago
