Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2011

Aromatically, pretty much perfection. Elegant & silky with layers of texture. Kept unfolding with nuance & detail with air. Acid brightens the pure brisk fruit. Drinking beautifully at age ten. — 18 days ago

Ante Phylloxera Clos de Maulevrier Franc De Pied Touraine Cabernet Franc 2012

Wow. Amazing on day 2 (day 1 was dark red fruit and a lot of red bell pepper) with a nose that was like a raft of strawberry, raspberry and a bit of boysenberry with more subtle tones of bell pepper, tobacco and earth. No noticeable wood, ample acidity but not austere. Hits a sweet spot for Cab Franc. For history, quality, QPR - will take this over Rougeard any day. — 2 years ago

@Noah Raizman How long do you think this will last? I’m holding a few bottles

@Chris MacLean at least a decade of not more. This is lithe but has good tannic density and continue to improve to day three. Not monolithic nor mouthdrying like some young Bordeaux, but this should certainly age well

@Noah Raizman , thanks for the data point. As I suspected/hoped you’d say!

Clos Rougeard

Le Bourg Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc

Once it opens the flavor profile is lovely and savory. Pepper and herbs mostly with a hint of red fruit and a long finish. Weightless yet rich and complex with several layers of flavors. — 12 days ago

Clos de l'Olive Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015

I’ve enjoyed several of their whites but this was my first encounter with a Red from Couly-Dutheil.
It will for sure not be my last....

IMHO not that far behind Clos Rougeard for a fraction of the price.
