Château de Brézé

Clos de l'Etoile Saumur Cabernet Franc 2016

2016. Capsicum and chalk. Quite a hit of new oak that integrates with aeration. A big, structured wine for the vintage. Should have quite a long life. #châteaudebrézé #saumur #cabernetfranc — 4 months ago

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Vintage 2011 / dark colour, beautiful smell, complex with vanilla, cedar, milkchocolate, laurel, stewed red fruit, refined taste with narrow spine. Still tannic but good with food after aeration.

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. — a year 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.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 1999

VIADER Napa Valley 1999

Dark chocolate, cocoa, cherry, plum, cedar with peppery notes. Slightly oxdized with a funky nose at first. Cabernet Franc contributes to this rounded softness.

Growers Blend Niagara Peninsula VQA Cabernet Franc 2015

2015 Tawse Growers Blend Cabernet Franc from Niagara. Med body, with dark fruit, a little tobacco and slightly licorice like on the back end. Still some oak showing but otherwise well balanced tannins and good acidity. Had it open for 20 minutes but would prefer to taste again in 2-3 years. All in all a very good example of Niagara Cab Franc. #CabernetFranc #NiagaraRedWine #Tawse #GrowersBlend #2015NiagaraVintage #PaulPender #VQA #DrinkCanadianWine — 9 months ago


La Baronnie Madeleine Chinon Cabernet Franc

Vintage 2014 / True to type #Chinon, perhaps a bit stubborn at the moment in taste, with archetypical #cabernetfranc taste, combination of red fruit, minerals, flint. — 8 months ago

You should try a bottle of 2011 this year. Definitely young, but showing such nice fruit and complexity. Stuff is outstanding.
