The 2018 Chinon Clos Guillot is a rich, focused powerhouse that's firm and direct, with dark blackberries and smoky notes. If we lived in an ideal world, this would be aged before releasing, as it's ripe yet tight and tannic, with the limestone soils providing grip along the sides of the mouth and a sense of direction. Lengthy, serious and complex, leaving the mouth full of dark berry fruit, spice and tea leaves. A baby. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, October 2021)

A lot of fun with this beautiful Cab-Franc de Loire. Dark, shiny purple color. open nose on black fruits and mineral touches of graphite. The green notes that are sometimes found prominently on this grape are discreet and let express a beautiful round and lively juice that magnifies the fruit. It is a magnificent natural wine, unfiltered. Favorite đź’“

Énormément de plaisir avec ce beau Cab-Franc de Loire. Robe violine sombre, brillante. nez ouvert sur les fruits noirs et touches minérales de graphites. Les notes vertes qu’on trouve parfois sur ce cépage de manière proéminente sont discrètes et laissent s’exprimer un beau jus rond et vif qui magnifie le fruit. C’est un magnifique vin nature, non filtré. Coup de cœur 💓

Half bottle. Medium purple color. Extremely green nose as this is very young. Nice depth, but minimal fruit. Paired nicely with tacos. Lovely texture. Medium minus finish.
