La Dilettante Bourgueil Cabernet Franc

Three cheers for carbonic maceration! Ripe and stewed black fruit, spice and funk. A very cab sav-like cab franc. — 5 days ago

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Le Clos Guillot Chinon Cabernet Franc 2009

Nose of dried violet, fire roasted green bell pepper, earth, cherry, iron.

Raspberry, cherry, cranberry, and earth. Still great acidity with dusty, slightly astringent tannin. Love that lingering cranberry bitterness on the finish.

Wonderful stuff with all the classic Loire cab franc notes you know and love. Still a lot of structure there 10 years out. Could go longer to soften out and evolve.

Les Varennes du Grand Clos Chinon Cabernet Franc 2012

30+ minute decant. Dark red color. French terroir, bell pepper, and green elements on the nose. Wine has close to zero fruit, but an abundance of spice and vegetable flavors. Medium finish. Awesome QPR. — 7 days ago

Cuvée du Domaine Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 1986

Les Cent Boisselées Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2017


This is great because it’s so typical of #loirecabfranc #loirewine #cabernetfranc #bourgueil and it’s clean and has tertiaries and everything lovely about a Cab Franc, crushed red peppercorns, potpourri and red cherries. — a month ago
