Always a favorite producer. Earthy red fruits, white pepper, sous bois.

A total favorite for me. Love this wine and producer. Light but full, fruit on the nose with long flowing finish of hard herbs and earth.

Textbook Bourgueil. Pure, pyraziney, earthy with a beautifully light and refreshing texture. Tried again 10/22 and was pure and lovely.

This is stunning. What poise and length. The length is ridiculous. Wild, feral, stony nose, gravy, darkness, woodland berries, elf-like creature's tiny droppings and so much more. Not for everyone but it is definitely for me. Palate is refined and powerful with serious structure and density and very vivid fruit. A big boy but so juicy. What length. Genius wine that has 20+ years in the tank.

Raspberry, button mushrooms, pyrazines, brett. I like the funkiness and adds an extra dimension to this lean CF. Classic crunchy texture with elevated acid and minerality. 40 year old vines
