Saumur, Anjou Saumur

Anne Claude Leflaive

Clau De Nell Cuvée Violette Anjou Cabernet Franc Blend 2013

Кислая вишня, свекла, красное яблоко, черника, лимон, графит, мох, влажная зелень, чёрный перец горошком, земля. Среднее тело с нервной кислотностью и ещё чуть шершавыми танинами. Молодо и напряжённо, туго скручено и зелено, но при этом естественно, чисто, с азартной дрожью и неплохой структурой. На второй день меняется не сильно, сохраняет гипертонус и интенсивную пронзительность. — 12 days ago

Brézé Clos David Monopole Saumur Chenin Blanc 2017

Not mass produced.

Saumur is a region in Loire Valley. World class.

Breze Hills- limestone hills.

Chenin Blanc.

If a sweet tart and a smartie mated and has a baby. A lot of body. Apple. Tart. Chalk finish.

Family Feud, chocolate and a nice cab franc, how can you go wrong. I guess if it was Friday. Plums and fresh gravel just put down on your driveway. What a pair but just so delicious. — 15 days ago

Moulin Touchais

Reserve du Fondateur Anjou Chenin Blanc 1959

Wow. This was a truly profound wine. How such lightness and great depth can exist hand in hand is a real conundrum. A beautiful nose of honeyed spring flowers along the Loire - as long as sin and refreshing as a cold bath in a still river at dusk. If that sounds silly it’s probably due to the effects of this bottle... — 19 days ago

Moulin Touchais is quintessential old school sweet Chenin. Love it!

Clos Rougeard

Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2013

Black peppercorn, tobacco, highly aromatic, delicate but affirmative tannins. A bench mark. — 7 days ago

Thibaud Boudignon

Anjou Chenin Blanc 2016

This was fantastic, only problem was that bottle wasn’t larger. Chenin can be “comfort food” for me as I just keep going back. This hit the spot. Really elegant but focused style. — 3 months ago
