Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2007

So good! A wine that always stands out among its peers. Rich dark berry fruits, crushed rock, forest floor, dried herbs with good spice that is silky & floral.t — 16 days ago

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Beautiful wine. This was direct from the Chateau and it showed. Among the most elegant and poised Bordeaux I’ve had, reminded me of Clos Rougeard, fair bit of acidity and lift. Very aromatic. 12% alcohol. They don’t (can’t) make it like this any more. Excellent. 1989 Vintage — a year ago

A great wine. Wonderfully integrated oak, great bell pepper nose, smooth and light. Corkage ftw. — 2 days ago

Le Bourg Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2010

Good aromatic intensity of typical green and black pepper notes. Lots of structure. Would prefer to let this sit another 5-10yrs to let the oak integrate and the secondary flavors develop — 3 months ago

Les Renardes Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Servi à l'aveugle pour testé le Clos Rougeard. Fruits noirs, épices, le bois est encore présent et se développe avec l'air bien et en a besoin. Texture soyeuse, belle rondeur. — 2 years ago

"Brézé" Saumur Chenin Blanc 2013

Well balanced, dynamic, old world style wine with hints of clove, milk chocolate (a pleasant surprise), and a fair amount of tropical fruit, pear, lemon, and yeast. In all candor, I’m getting different flavors every time I take a sip! — 2 months 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. — a year 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!
