Brut Excellence Cremant de Loire Sparkling Blend

This salmon-pink Loire crèment is a bottle of pure pleasure. Cab Franc rosé Brut, with all the trimmings. Great fruity nose, a bit of toast in it. The palate offers a fabulous swath of cherries, strawberries and a hint of raspberries. The fruit is all on the ripe side, and the acidity is nothing short of a razor line. Great sipping, great pairing with just about anything. — 3 days ago

Clos de l'Olive Chinon Cabernet Franc 2016

Love the olive. This wine always has major Graves vibes. Sick nose of cassis, kirsch, tweed, old books, minerals and mashed violets. Palate is as expected very young but elegant, balanced and very pure. Awesome core of fruit and so juicy. Very refined. Terrific stuff. Needs 2-3 hours and 10 years but lovely to sip slowly tonight with a sirloin. Ripe but substantial tannins and just gorgeous purity. Terrific freshness. Really well made. — 9 days ago

COTE 50 Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2018

@Delectable Wine this is the côte 50. Lovely purity and vivid fruit, and a solid value at €12. Crunchy red fruits and a leafy twang on the palate lead to a gravelly finish. Smoothed out over the course of 3 days being open. 👍👌 — 10 days ago

@Daniel Maquin love the ones I’ve tried. This is this first time I’ve seen this bottling, entry level I assume. Going back for a few more today!

Evolved very nicely. Somehow sweeter, richer and with a longer finish than in 2015. Best analogue is a grand cru burgundy. It doesn’t get much better than this. Perfect drinking window right now. — 11 days ago

La Butte Touraine Gamay

Feel like I haven’t had this in ages and this one is making me regret it. A little richer than some vintages, but all that lush fruit also made it so inviting — 8 days ago

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Chinon Cabernet Franc 2018

Superb expression of Cabernet-Franc in a very natural style with little or no added sulphites. All in fruit (red). Magnificent in consistency and roundness. So greedy. To drink from the aperitif. Super price / pleasure ratio

Superbe expression du Cabernet-Franc dans un style très nature avec pas ou peu d’apport de sulphites. Tout en fruit (rouges). Magnifique de cohérence et de rondeur. Très gourmand. A boire dès l’apéro. Super rapport prix/plaisir

Les Argiles Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Honeyed lemon peel; yellow flowers, ripe juicy Macintosh apple, less of the lanolin and hay that I’d expect from CB and more of petrol/petrichor. Delicious either way. Mouthwatering acid with a round texture. — 2 days ago

Les Capriades Pet' Sec Chenin Blanc Cabernet Franc 2019

Such a cool bottle. Not as tall as the Freedom Tower, but close from this vantage!

Heavy brioche, like the cheesiest brioche you can imagine. Which I love. Pears and apricot juice. Birds of paradise leaf fronds.

Perfect harmony of creaminess, acid, fruit, and sweetness. Wonderfully rounded. Fine, savory bubbles. Definitely stonefruit and dried apricots and more of that lovely brioche.
