Jasnières, Touraine

Domaine de Bellivière (Eric Nicolas)

Les Rosiers Jasnières Chenin Blanc

Classic Loire Chenin aromatics in all dimensions. RS accentuates the honey & apricot character in an off dry style that creates interesting tension between fruit, acid and texture. The finish surprises with slightly bitter lemon pith, leaving a very phenolic impression of a wine that is otherwise very rich and opulent. — 12 days ago

@Aravind Asok We put this vintage on closeout a few months ago. I just now got around to the last bottle. I’ll talk to our Farm rep this week. Check with us soon.

Cool, my email should be in your system. I'm also interested in the caligramme (same producer).

@Aravind Asok I’m sure we can make that happen. Current vintage at the very least. Caligramme is also a terrific wine. I hope they made it in ‘16 and ‘17- that stretch of the Loire saw some devastating frost during those years. Cheers, mate.

Domaine du Moulin (Hervé Villemade)

Cheverny Sauvignon Blanc-Chardonnay Blend 2017

Can’t place the unique nose. Very high- toned, almost watermelon candy- like. My wife thinks it smells like baby formula. Explodes in your mouth. I get a little grapefruit rind on the back of the tongue. And im getting kiwi Chard adds some weight to it. Unique. A very interesting and thoughtful drink. — 15 days ago

Chevalerie Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2014

Nice Cab Franc from the Loire. Quite deep in the glass. Very stereotypical green peppery notes on the nose. On the palate the fruit comes through but this definitely has some serious vegetal notes. Good acid on the finish. Nice. — 16 days ago

Les Picasses Chinon Cabernet Franc 2009

Welcome back old friend. Brick hue & translucent edge, deep black fruits & burnished leather nose, lovely medium bodied cassis blackberry body. Having drank many of these releases young, the bass and deeper notes are starting to ring. Dressner import. Yum, big time. No, I didn’t drink this at temple, but Delectable stopped feeding my proper location — 5 days ago

Grand-Mont Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2011

Lush and muddy at once. Nice, subtle maturity—some cedar, dried tobacco—and an unexpected kernel or butter on the nose. Soft, lush tannins and red fruit. Would love to have some roast veggies with woody herbs or roast chicken with this — 9 days ago

Domaine Ricard

Le Petiot Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Touraine Sauvignon that would blow a lot of Sancerre off the table. Flinty, rich and bust-out ripe, like a lot of Loire ‘18s will be. Theft at $13-$15 retail. — 3 days ago
