Savennières, Anjou Saumur

Château de la Mulonniere

L'effet Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2013

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

(Saint-Jean-de-Mauvrets) Chenin Blanc Anjou AOC 2017

A few months since our last bottle, notes are still consistent:
100% Chenin Blanc; Anjou AOC (Saint-Jean-des-Mauvrets)
Nose of dry limestone, honey, beeswax and dried apricots.
Palate has chalky apricot, peach skin, nice acid balance and medium finish.
$14, QPR is just a crazy value play!

I couldn’t find this bottle at Total Wines but did find another #anjoublanc with promising reviews. Looking forward to trying it.

@Vasanth Balakrishnan Likely not an offering at TW, but Chenin can have many different expressions, all are good, some need lots of years tho.

René Noël Legrand

Les Rogelins Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2010

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

Excellence Brut Rosé

We're entertaining my in-laws and parents today, fun 🤷‍♂️. Bottles go fast when you're pouring for six glasses.

Strawberry, raspberry, white bread, crowd pleaser.

I like the regular brut version a little better though.

Domaine aux Moines

Savennières-Roche aux Moines Chenin Blanc 1999

Really good honey and wax aromas, that wet wool but a really tight weave. Orchard fruit acidity and wet stone minerality. Right. Modest but right. — 20 days ago

Domaine Guiberteau

Saumur Cabernet Franc 2018

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

Domaine Bobinet

Hanami Cabernet Franc

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
