One sniff of the glass tells you you’re in the Loire Valley. Green pepper, herbs and tobacco resonate. Precise and silky on the palate . The only thing that tempered my enthusiasm was the level of complexity was not at the level this producer is known for. Perhaps more time is needed.

Iron, pencil shavings, wild berry, earthy spice, wet stone, great acid. Probably the best most expressive/focused cab franc I’ve ever had. Just got better and better as it opened. Thanks Doug!

Still young but incredible stuff. Purity that is perhaps unmatched.

A bit shut down and closed at the moment. Aromatics and palette were tight and not terribly generous. Still pretty nice though.
