Invictus Red Blend 2015

Lyle Fass
9.5

Just a great wine. 100% amphorae aged and fermented Cabernet Franc from vineyards in Muscadet. Much more open than last bottle. Gorgeous pure berry fruit. Mid season cherry. Some cassis. Spice. Resin. Almost smells like an e an m Grand Cru. Unreal florals, herbals and spice. Sick nose 9.6 nose. Leather. So complex. Just sick. Just noticed 11.5% alcohol. Deep, tannic and ripe. Big tannins but so elegant and finesse driven. Obvious structure and tannins place all over the mouth. Sappy and barely sweet with immense power and depth. Concentrated tiny berry fruit. Juicy and pure. So long and deep but also has so much more fruit, structure and other good stuff in reserve. So good. — 6 days ago

RedNoz Cabernet Franc

Vintage 2015 / A red wine from a white wine district. Not filtered, biodynamic ánd made without sulphite. This cabernet franc offers a shy smell with minerals and a fruity expression in smell and taste. It has no complexity whatsoever, it is glorious in its symplicity! The French call this affectionately Glou Glou, I think American and English call this quaffable and my personal (Dutch) expression is: hap sap. Meaning after a sip you want immediately another sip. Super appealing. It is an ideal wine for lunch on a hot July day - that is if you do not want to take a hazy sleep in the afternoon. 😉/ Paired with a fish/courgette/pesto dish, worked wonderful. At restaurant Mamagoto in Paris. — 7 months ago

Classic White Blend 2018

Not certain this is a “blend”, rather this is straight up Melon de Bourgogne, driven to the fruit edge, but lovely with oysters (as befits) and equally nice without them...delicate acidity and an unusual dark roundness, orb-like, mildly bitter flesh and some medicinal quality, which I think is this grape...wine for watching seagulls. — 2 months ago

Mephisto Cabernet Franc 2015

Big and beautiful nose with a lean body. Day 3 and it’s gorgeous. Little floral violet and black currant and juicy crunchy acids. Think this is going to stun in 5-10 years. — 3 months ago

@Michal Rosenn Soo good. Such an incredible expression of Cab Franc, especially surprising coming from the Pays Nantais!

I have become obsessed with Muscadet (and I don’t eat oysters!). Will have to look for this one to try.
