Domaine De la Noiraie

Cuvée Prestige Bourgueil Cabernet Franc

Bright fruit (strawberry, cherry) on the nose. Round palate with fruits on the side, a silky touch, no tannins, a short finish with red fruits again. Pleasant — 2 days ago

Outstanding new world Cab Franc. So light and elegant across the palate. Shows the intricacies of Chinon, with the approachability of a table wine. Whew. Gotta try more Broc. — 10 days ago

Columbia Valley Cabernet Franc Rosé 2017

New vintage, first tasting, and my first rose of the warm season here in the PNW. Salmon pink with orange tinge. Excellent clarity. Red fruit and white pepper-sage notes in nose. Round mouthfeel. Lemon-citrus, cherry and stone fruit in mouth, some skin astringency, slight soapyness in finish, cherry-citrus and slight black pepper aftertaste. Dry, flavorful, nice varietal character, goes either way, sipping or food. Fruit flavors are delicate, faded after 24 hours so drink up or share — 11 days ago

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2014

Open this a day early, decant, pour yourself a glass, pour back into the bottle, put cork back in and drink the next day. It's great the first day with a good decant but it's amazing on day two and three! SS — 7 days ago

Grand Mont Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2002

9.0

Not world changing, but the poster child for aging inexpensive wines. Still true to it's spicy and herbal cab franc roots, but wrapped in silky tobacco and Earth and just the lightest touch of oxidation. Sure, it'd be better with a little more heft, but no one's complaining with Wednesday night dinner — 11 days ago

Pop Cabernet Franc Pineau d'Aunis

9.3

I’m legit about to pop over Laurent Saillard's "POP" blend of Cab Franc & Pineau d'Aunis. It smells like a faint breeze of clean laundry, tastes like ruby red grapefruits sprinkled with salt, garnished with lime rinds & thyme, and feels like you just gulped a glass of palpable sexual tension. It has this intensely flirtatious energy to it, like you've teasing back & forth with someone all afternoon and then they pull you in close by your belt-loops & you don't know if you're going to makeout or explode, but it's most definitely both. Honestly? I could jerk off to this wine and it is currently leading the race of the official sparkling wine of the summer. Pair it with Hot Flash Heat Wave's "Dirty Dreamer (XXX)". — 23 days ago

Rosé Cabernet de Saumur 2017

At first I thought it was a little too bright on the finish, but it grew on me and it has the stuffing to carry it. Cherries, mouthwatering. Could be a sipper on a hot day, but right now better with food (especially spicy). SS — 7 days ago
