Saint-Cyr-En-Bourg Terres Rouges Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2019

Never fails. Just the right amount of vegetal. Ripe but right. Perfect bistro wine. Pair with vegetable pasta or steak tartare. Last of 6. 2019 sold out around here. Will try the 2020’s. — 7 hours ago

"La Haye Dampierre" Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2019

Vintage 2019 | very true to type Cabernet Franc - with blackberries and cherries in smell, a faint austerity in taste, good acids, lovely effort | paired with a mushroom lasagne | one glass was left over in the bottle with an oxy-stop, this glass was excellent after 5 days: nice silky structure in taste without any sharp edges — 11 days ago

Château d'Epiré

Grand Cru D'Anjou Savennières Chenin Blanc 2019

A warm vintage, medium lemon color with aromas of white fruits and wet stone aromas. On the palate flavors of ripe apple & peach, very complex, lively acidity. Long finish ending with mineral and sweet honey character, should age well, but great now! — 8 days ago

Clos Rougeard

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2012

Moins top que la dernière bouteille, du poivron rouge et des notes végétales nobles mais la magie Rougeard n’est pas tout à fait au RV. Manque un peu de profondeur cette bouteille.

Lacks the usual depth despite the red peppers and “noble” vegetal aromas, bottle mot as good as the last one i had of this 2012.

Fun, fresh, juicy. Fruit forward with loads of cherry and cranberry, earth, and a hint of capsicum. Cab Franc and Grolleau. Great with a slight chill. — 14 days ago
