There‘s a nice note of used paperback within the mineral profile here, otherwise this is all comforting red fruits and spice. Elegant, but with deceptive structure and tannin, this could use some time to unfurl.

Another great value from this producer, this is obviously young and tight, but enjoyable nonetheless. Red fruit, tomato leaf and tobacco with a mineral spine and herbal finish. Good with food.

Cabernet Franc from the Loire - my first red love. This has all the characteristics of the region but all wound up in a beautiful, gentle sweet aroma. Tart fruit, spice, with a mild bitter finish. This is beautiful! So well integrated for such a young entry-level wine. Unfiltered - noticed the sediment too late..Keep this one to yourself. Will revisit.

this one is a baby....but that color is so seductive, and within an hour it’s singing “but if you try sometimes.....you’ll find......” (you get what you need.....or something like that). Tooth etching powder wash.....
