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.

Oh man! Big woolly Chenin nose. Wow. Electric Kool Aid with wool electric cut. Wow. A mammoth electrified. Some almonds, Meyer lemon as well. Super refined and elegant nose. So clean. Wow. Just Rieslingesque Chenin. Palate is immaculate. Perfect texture, balance and lithe concentration and almost a tannic impression on the back end. So sappy and pure. Brilliant finesse. Wow. This is drop dead. Super wine. Wow. Has 10+ years to go. Super lemony and no lack of acid. Long long finish. Dynamite. — 21 days ago

Château d'Epiré

Grand Cru D'Anjou Savennières Chenin Blanc 2019

A warm vintage, medium lemon color with aromas of white fruits and wet stone aromas. On the palate flavors of ripe apple & peach, very complex, lively acidity. Long finish ending with mineral and sweet honey character, should age well, but great now! — 19 hours ago

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2018

Really enjoyable cab franc from the Loire. Lively and fun and seemingly carefully crafted to achieve a beautiful, round finish, not like new world cab franc and definitely not spicy, or fruit forward. — 19 days ago
