Chinon Cabernet Franc 2019

Vacation time with a gorgeous Chinon (Cab Franc) with an earthy nose of pepper, blackberry, eucalyptus ajd cedar. The palate possesses good acidity with boozy plum, green pepper and cola. — 9 days ago

Les Granges Chinon Cabernet Franc 2019

Mushrooms, red hots, and cherry chapstick might not sound like a great combination… but I liked it! (Just like a Katy Perry song). — 4 days ago

Fun. In excellent shape

Bell pepper bomb

Lovely aromatics, mushrooms, coffee, chocolate, wet earth

La Croix Boissée Chinon Cabernet Franc 2018

Stellar. A touch of that pretty Chinon violet flower and manure funk. St. Emilion-like concentration but this isn’t inky or extracted in the least. Luxurious, satin-like texture and tannins, with a subtly sweet finish. Feels a bit higher alcohol and less acid than some of the more classic Chinon vintages, but on the basis of the massive concentration and nascent complexity this will develop very well. Young but already approachable. — 12 days ago

@Jason Gelman I’d wait a few years. Delicious now but still very primary (I opened to assess how much I want to cellar, which will be at least a half a case)

Antea Touraine Chenonceaux Cabernet Franc Côt 2017

Vintage 2017 | AOC Touraine Chenonceaux | 20% Cabernet Franc 80% Cot | Cuvée Antéa | refined cherries in smell, an impression of roses, taste with character - off course, it is Cot! - and power, more a dinnerwine than to drink on its one. That being said, the wine has the swallow reflex. It drinks surprisingly fast. Paired with Anjou pigeon and turnip greens stew. — 8 days ago

Raspberries and roses on their stems, mixed bouquet of herbs. Smooth palate with lovely brightness, sweet fruit character, and a hint of white pepper.

Fantastic w smoky salmon and broccolini.
