Savennières, Anjou Saumur

Garnier JC

Les Tailles Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Drank over the course of three days; just like Mufasa, this fine drop from Anjou was dignified and imposing until the end. Surprised that any sniff of oxidation - and there was near none - was in reality a welcomed influence. Would happily order a case of this medium bodied blend of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon. A mouthful of ripe strawberries and plums, a little perfume, low acid (but enough so it wasn’t flabby), soft tannins with a slightly jammy concentration at the tail. Confident this would be a pleasure to have any day, at any hour, meal or no meal, friends or no friends, in bed, at a table, or on the floor. A beautiful wine beautifully made. Bravo J. C. Garnier. — 13 hours ago

Golden. Nose full of beeswax, apricot, and a bit of smoke. On the palate, it’s wildly fresh, racy and complex, with ruby red grapefruit, underripe strawberry, and a linger hint of attractive smoke throughout. Lovely introduction to Savennières. (Jason Wilson, Vinous, July 2020)

Domaine Guiberteau

Clos de Guichaux Monopole Bizay Saumur Chenin Blanc 2015

Aromas of lemon, some apple, beeswax and some wet stone. The acidity is there along with a nice richness, medium-full bodied and wide along with very good persistence, delicious. 91-92 almost

Arômes de citron, pommes, roche mouillée et cire d’abeille. Une bouche pleine et large, tension et richesse se côtoient avec une longue finale persistante. Délicieux. 91-92

Love this wine. Electric boogaloo type wine. So much energy. Could power a small house! Nose is high toned meyer lemon, fresh almonds, saline minerals, persian cucumber, swimming pool. Just wow nose. Palate is just electric! ⚡️so much acid and texture. Insane minerality. Pretty much no fruit. Sappy and extracted with a never ending finish. Structured to a T. Wow wine and wonderful. As it airs the nose gets phyllo dough and that takes this over the top! — 9 days ago

Le Pied a L'Etrier Saumur Puy Notre Dame Cabernet Franc 2014

Been a couple years since I’ve had this. Still needs decanting (a little tart to start) and better the second day (after the funk blows off) great with food. — 5 days ago

La Folie Lucé

Autrement Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2011

A nose of strawberries, red peppers, some vegetal and earthy tones. Palate is medium bodied plus, but with nice acidity and some approachable tannins, that have just a tad of dryness on the finish, nice bottle and surprisingly fresh in this warm weather.

Nez de fruits rouges, fraises entre autres, poivron rouge, un peu de végétal et un côté terreux. Une bouche de corps moyen à puissant, acidité assez vive, mais avec des tannins assez agréables malgré une légère sècheresse qui n’est pas désagréable en fin de bouche. 89-90

@Nicolas Duchesneau à ce prix la ($41 je crois pour le 2014 en IP chez ABC) si tu aimes le Cabernet franc c’est très bien et ça peut vieillir facilement aussi.

Saumur Cabernet Franc 2018

Definitely tightly wound in a good way... nervy red fruit; herbal inflections, and nice green pepper notes. Quenchable even on a warm summer evening. — 7 days ago
