Classic bistro wine. Might just have to snag a case for home.

16.5 Good fruit ,m+ length, good acidity, just what you want from a Loire CF. Great with fat fish. Note: 6+ years old, very fresh.

Like a lot of reds from the Loire, this is a touch green, but just a touch. Delicate smells of plums, cherry, and cedar accompany a surprisingly light, almost Burgundian wine well suited to a weeknight meal.

Wel made, with a classic Loire cab franc profile. Red fruit and dusty earth abound, exactly as they should.

Wonderful, classic Saumur-Champigny. Everything in balance, dark fruit and cab franc acid and tannin. Not too rustic, and definitely not glou-glou, just unmistakable Loire wine.

Love this wine. Ripe plums waiting on the front side. Filet for dinner and this on a beautiful Saturday in Detroit.

Savory with good acids and tannins that developed more after opening. Vanilla, bell pepper, dark honey, ripe cherry, wet leaves, from Flatiron Wines, NY Times 20 under $20 list 2019.

Very meaty nose, sorrel, acid bites right away, beautiful magenta, rose, nice balance, slight brown sugar at the end
