16.5/20 (91/100) Оксидативный стиль, ферментация и выдержка на осадке в дубе в течение 13 месяцев. Аромат абрикосового и яблочного варенья, грушевого пюре и жареных лесных орехов. Умеренная тельность, высокая кислотность. Вкус отстаёт в насыщенности от аромата, но, всё-равно отлично. — 3 days ago

Nose of dry limestone, honey, beeswax and dried apricots.
Palate has chalky apricot, peach skin, nice acid balance and medium finish.

Vintage 2010 / Too young, I am afraid. Half transparant color with brown rim. The nose seemed closed, but even after two hours in the decanter the smell is shy. A very lightish strawberry impression, plums. A bit spicy. The taste is very powerfull, friendly though after aeration. Smooth. This top cuvee of Legrand is able to age well. Good balance. Cabernet franc at its best. / Paired with lambsmeat and pepperbell. And with French cheese Epoisses. — 14 days ago
Green pepper, black pepper, cherry, currant. Wow what a nose. The palate is full and wide with a ripe currant and a radiant cherry, a strong acid backbone and a dense matter. The touch is soft on the sides and some tannins kick in in the rear. Super long and fruitful finish that goes for ever. Wow this is my kind of stuff! — 8 days ago
Rachet aromas in the glass, clearing with time. Honey and gamey with roaring acidity. From magnum. — 17 days ago
This is a fabulous cab franc from the Loire Valley - one of my favorites. super fruity and just downright yummy. Does anyone know if this is available in the states? I’ve had it twice now in France (a great deal at about 35 euros at a restaurant, so I’m guessing less than $20 bottle of available). — 2 days ago
