La Marginale Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2016

9.4

Great nose. Beautiful cassis and berry fruit. Some beautiful minerality. Amazingly layered and detailed. Superbly mineral and earthy and wonderful layered and deep aromas. Stunning, really. Juicy with crisp acids and so much fruit and a taut structure. Long finish that dissipates beautifully. — 8 days ago

Strongly fruity, rich and powerful white wine. Mono cépage chenin. Raised on 500l wood barrels which helps to limit imprint . Very refined. No sulfur = no headaches. Beautiful intense color. Disk is medium thick = acidity. Rich honey smellat first which develops into obvious coconut. Brioche. Thick/greasy. Drink with cheese such as beaufort or muscles with safran,

La Coudraye Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2017

A delicious gift from @Matt Waring -- delightful even before the pork salad is on the table. Becky noted cherry, strawberry -- dry, strawberry on the palate! Thanks Matt! — 7 days ago

Catherine et Pierre Breton

Trinch Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2016

Quite vegetal at first but then it mellows into a lovely Loire CF. Exactly what you want when you pull a cork on one of these. Blackberries, raspberries, and red bell pepper along with some green tea leaves and black stone. — 9 days ago

Tuffe Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2015

Really nice nose with tomato sauce, black cherry, black pepper and green bell pepper.

Great medium body and balance of red fruit, acidity and silky tannins with lingering pepper, ferrous tomato, and black tea.

Beautiful, balanced, and food friendly...all for $16. No brainer.

Saumur Brut Rosé

100% Cabernet Franc (Rosé Corail), Loire Valley, Samur.

Just a beautiful bottle of the sparkling version of probably one of my favorite grapes, Mmmm Cab Franc!

Nose is earthy raspberry with spring strawberry juice, cold wet slate and grapefruit zest.
Palate is dirty raspberry/strawberry, ruby grapefruit juice lite and wet mineral trending sandstone.

Last bottle 😕

The best muselet cap in the business, IMHO.
