Bonnezeaux, Anjou Saumur

Benoit Courault

Les Tabeneaux Anjou Cabernet Franc 2018

Stinky af- strong cowpie that mostly blew off by the end of the glass. Good stuff underneath. Silky with more fruit, like a mouthful of black raspberries and red currants. Savory/brothy finish and a whiff of pine and cab franc spice. — 21 hours ago

Domaine Arnaud Lambert

Brézé Clos de Midi Lieu-Dit Saumur Chenin Blanc 2017

Minerals/flint, beeswax, lime. Racy and high acid on the palate with some white flower notes, limey acidity and mineral driven finish. Delicious stuff. — 7 days ago

Château de Brézé

Clos David Saumur Blanc Chenin Blanc 2014

Wow... this was outstanding. A floral bouquet + honeycomb + chalk left out in the rain... And I haven’t even got to the tingly, acidic grace note yet. A wonderful complement to grilled halibut with lemon and asparagus. — 2 days ago

Domaine Guiberteau

Saumur Chenin Blanc 2018

Absolutely stunning. This release/vintage has a lot of life left in it. I cannot wait to drink my other cellared bottle in ten years. Fresh yellow and white orchard fruits, young creamy Brie cheese, multiple layers of texture and minerality. I will literally FIGHT to continue buying upcoming vintages of Romain Guiberteau’s releases, with avid search for his small release Cabernet francs from Saumur; even Grolleaus, with fingers crossed that they will stay so affordable. Wait and see, his release prices are going to quickly climb in the coming years. — 24 days ago

Mai et Kenji Hodgson

P'tit Luchini Vin de Soif Grolleau

Initially carbonic effervescent stuff which feels like a meaty champagne, giving way to something very widescreen and alive, better than some of the ratings on here that I suspect see the fizziness as a fault. — 22 days ago

Domaine Arnaud Lambert

Saint Cyren Bourg Terres Rouges Saumur-Champigny 2017

Nose of violets, green bell pepper, black pepper, red onion. Palate of red flowers, tomato, spice, black tea. Acidity and tannin are medium. Tannin is fine and very well integrated especially given its youth. Very supple and silky texture. — 7 days ago
