Les Argiles à Silex Vieilles Vignes Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2018

Earthy, peppery, bit of smoke, dry but strong red fruits. Great for an all-purpose Spring red. Will be excellent with grilling. — 2 months ago

St. Nicolas son! Just such a wonderfully light interpretation of cab franc! Crisp green peppers, peppercorn, and blackberry. — 6 months ago

Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Vin d'une Oreille Cabernet Franc 2014

Sébastien only produces this wine in vintages he believes are optimal. This undergoes an extended élevage, as is typical for this Domaine. 2014 is one of my favorite recent vintages for Cabernet Franc in the Loire (when it is from quality producers!) and this wine further confirms my preference for this vintage. Kirsch, damp soil, black truffle, dried roses, barnyard, a touch of pyrazine character on the nose. Intensely tannic structure upon opening that softened over several hours. Fruit on the nose is echoed in the palate. This has the perfect amount of rusticity for my tastes. This is an incredible wine. — 4 months ago

La Source Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2015

Not so pepperish for a cabernet franc, strawberry jam instead. Joyful release of bell pepper er al. in the aftertaste. Mastered in the details. — 2 months ago

Domaine de la Cotelleraie

Gérald Vallée Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil Cabernet Franc

Huge waft of cranberry/blueberry fresh picked.
Tangy, zippy, bright fruits., a hint of herbaceous green herbs, high acidity makes this just one fun wine. Heavier of the light bodied spectrum. A lovely wine.
