Fantastic pull.

Domaine Guiberteau

Les Arboises Monopole Brézé Saumur Cabernet Franc 2011

Mineral nose to start. Pink quartz. A little charcoal dust too, then cedar and violets. Nose has some green pepper but body is so red fruited, sweet-tart, transparent, sappy, herbal and delicious. Fairly advanced; not much tannin. Has maybe 5 years but I’d drink this now. — 21 days ago

COTE 50 Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2018

Tør, næsten streng vin med masser af rå solbær i næse og mund. Trods garvesyre og rank krop et meget drikkevenlig glas vin. — 2 days ago

Domaine des Huards (Michel Gendrier)

Envol Cheverny Gamay Blend 2018

PN Gamay Blend #1: A nice biodynamic juice that honours the pinot noir, (by bringing a classy mouth) and the gamay, generous and flowery. The dress is dark but translucent. Open nose, very fruity. In the mouth the material is velvety, combining freshness and roundness, in a balance that makes this wine remarkable in its price range. Nice entry cuvée by an interesting domain of Loire region.

Un beau jus qui fait honneur au pinot noir, (en apportant une certaine tenue) et au gamay, généreux et accessible. La robe est violine sombre mais translucide. Le nez ouvert est très fruité. En bouche la matière est veloutée, associant fraîcheur et rondeur, dans un équilibre qui rend ce vin remarquable dans sa gamme de prix. Belle entrée en matière d’un super domaine.

Clau de Nell Anjou Cabernet Franc 2011

Deep dark purple in the glass, muted at first but with air the aromatics of blackberries, violets, cracked pepper, graphite and dried leaves come out to play. Palate-saturating and velvety in the mouth with finely grained tannins and sweet dark berry fruit. Beautiful and should last a while — 8 days ago
