2015 Prestige. Perfect wine for the price. Shows the vintage with lush red fruit (raspberry, some cherry, a touch of something darker), but a nice smoky savoriness on the back end. Very bright acidity and medium tannin. Great weekday dinner wine. — 5 days ago
Perfumed Chinon wafting out of the glass - brisk on the palate with the right amount of tannins. Drank the '15 out of a 375. Perfect regular, casual half bottle. — 6 days ago
Cabmac cabfranc = crunchtown madness. So satisfying ❤️
Typical reduction when first opened, but I really liked it here. It was like drinking pure black olives - briny and sweet. Took a few hours, but the wine finally revealed its juicy red fruit core. Herbal, but not in any way green, especially in the context of the vintage and variety. Some intriguing tabacco notes. Light, refreshingly tart, and too easy to drink. This is good juice!

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. — 24 days ago
