Zig zagging all over the place on the palate. As others have said "boom to the dynamite."

Showing a lot better than it did 18 months ago. Classic funky Saumur.

Yes, there's still oak here, but it has seamlessly integrated for the most part. Which leaves a deeply savory, herbal, red fruited Cab Franc that doesn't shy away from adding a little spice to the leather and tobacco. Some days you want the rustic log around the campfire, other days you want the La-Z-Boy. Best years still ahead, I think.

Great bottle cab franc consumed at the Morris. Went out and found me some for the home stash!

Gorgeous wine, #cabernetfranc at its finest. #guiberteau

I love this producer, the wine is so pure and "Burgundian" to borrow a phrase and description of a similar wine a friend recently used to describe Cabernet Franc made in this way from Saumur-Champigny.

Dense on opening and better on second day with dark plums and blackberries. Want to taste again in five years.
