Cuvée du Domaine Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 1986

Super dusty. Mushrooms, some bell pepper, under ripe strawberries. But a fine end to 2019! #cabernetfranc #bourgueil — 2 months ago

Le Grand Clos Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2010

Vintage 2010 - there are multiple reasons why I love #bourgueil let me explain. When I just discovered wine as a real passion - at the age of 18 - I adored the raspberry smell no other wine offered so generous. I like the name: Bourgueil is by far the most beautiful AOC name. My wife and I fell in love with the great dishes of Madame Debacker and the #Loire region on our honeymoon. This #cabernetfranc is deep black in the glass. It has character. Even at this age the wine shows a bit harshness, and an austerity that is found in Bordeaux often. But the raspberry and cherry smell reminds me of Cru de Beaujolais. It has also flint and mineral expression in smell, hints of leather, tobacco, clove. On the tongue it has a velvety structure. Bourgueil can be complex and frivolous at the same time. / Partnered it with Bavette from bbq and cauliflower mousse. — 2 years ago

Nice Peter. I also love the Loire Cabernet Fanc and Bougueil has some very nice expressions.

Nice notes and memories, I may just have to pull a cork out of a Bourgueil this evening.

Les Cent Boisselées Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2017


This is great because it’s so typical of #loirecabfranc #loirewine #cabernetfranc #bourgueil and it’s clean and has tertiaries and everything lovely about a Cab Franc, crushed red peppercorns, potpourri and red cherries. — 2 months ago
