Chucked bottle prematurely, so I think was a 2019. Saumur reds, ie, in this case 100% cab franc seemed to have bulked up the last few years. Yes, it’s a richer, deeper wine but does the ripeness suit the varietal, at least in the Loire? Here I would say yes. Plenty for Chinon lovers- gobs of red fruits, like crushed raspberries & cranberries, but bay leaf too on back end- it’s a nice longish finish.

Not much on the nose for me but it opened up more in the mouth. Strawberries right away, then some of the bell pepper qualities you expect toward the middle and end. Finishes with dry stone. 🍓

Très bien, fin, léger, mais ne me fais pas rêver.

Day 2: Cola and dark cherry nose, with graphite and smoke. Underripe currant leaking out as well. Gritty tannin with cranberry and cherry fruit. Chalky minerality. Lingers well, plenty of dimension.

This was awesome. I know that’s not a very descriptive review. But if you like Loire Valley Cab Franc, you’ll like this.

Light. Lots of violet. Not bad at all for $20

Light on nose, but pleasant. Soft flavor. Ate with Berger cookies
