Les Poyeux Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2014

Excellent Cabernet Franc from Saumur. High toned with great cherry and green pepper. Not too green, some great minerality and good acid keeps this nice. — 5 days ago

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2012

Dark forest fruits, trampled flowers, graphite, campfire smoke, fresh red bell pepper, dusty cellar, hard granite, dry savory spice, wet rock. This shit is 🔥 — 4 days ago

Les Gros Vin de Pays du Jardin de la France Grolleau 2017

A bit bretty, with cranberry and raspberry, resinous herbs. Like someone planted some weed next to your favorite wild berry patch in the park. Moderate acid and super low tannins. Quaffable if you want it like that, but also beautifully balanced and elegant if you want to sip and think. Thoroughly impressed with the deliciousness. — 6 days ago

Château du Hureau

Fours à Chaux Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2014

Well gosh...if this isn’t just lovely. This is exactly what I adore about Cab Franc from the Loire. The bouquet is a delight to behold with pretty red fruits and crushed gravel. Lots of texture here with fine tannins. I want more of this in my life. — 8 days ago

Great wine. High salinity. Pale gold in color. Notes of lemon, honey, melon, white flowers. Rich, oily mouthfeel. Medium acidity. Paired with a shrimp pasta dish. Reminds me of spring on the ocean. — 9 days ago

9.0

Great intensity with beautiful aromatics and a slight hint of used wood. The texture, structure, and balance were sublime. Ever so slight nail polish thing going on but it added to the character. Great long finish — 4 days ago

Domaine des Roches Neuves (Thierry Germain)

L'Insolite Saumur Chenin Blanc

Honeysuckle on the nose, smooth and silky palate, with lots of citrus. Held up really well with mackerel. Mental note to try it with bluefish in Quogue this summer. — 4 days ago

Over the top good. Starts out flinty and reduced almost like white burg then after an hour the chenin shines through with cheese, apricot and wax. What a great wine!!!! — a month ago
