"La Haye Dampierre" Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2019

Vintage 2019 | very true to type Cabernet Franc - with blackberries and cherries in smell, a faint austerity in taste, good acids, lovely effort | paired with a mushroom lasagne | one glass was left over in the bottle with an oxy-stop, this glass was excellent after 5 days: nice silky structure in taste without any sharp edges — 9 days ago

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2018

Really enjoyable cab franc from the Loire. Lively and fun and seemingly carefully crafted to achieve a beautiful, round finish, not like new world cab franc and definitely not spicy, or fruit forward. — 24 days ago

Clos Rougeard

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2012

Moins top que la dernière bouteille, du poivron rouge et des notes végétales nobles mais la magie Rougeard n’est pas tout à fait au RV. Manque un peu de profondeur cette bouteille.

Lacks the usual depth despite the red peppers and “noble” vegetal aromas, bottle mot as good as the last one i had of this 2012.

Château d'Epiré

Grand Cru D'Anjou Savennières Chenin Blanc 2019

A warm vintage, medium lemon color with aromas of white fruits and wet stone aromas. On the palate flavors of ripe apple & peach, very complex, lively acidity. Long finish ending with mineral and sweet honey character, should age well, but great now! — 6 days ago
