Interesting to drink these wines young when I've had so many more mature versions. Appealing now, but this is one for the long haul without any of the much-too-muchness that marks many Loire wines from that year.

Such a beautiful wine. There's a density of fruit, but so much freshness and herbal complexity. Incredibly well done. Keeping the Cab Franc training rolling!!

Happiness is Cabernet Franc. Dark fruit, red cherry, earth, bright acidity, orange rind, tea leaf.

I'm told you need to give Raffault more like 10 years, but this is in a pretty good place right now.

2009-unfiltered this 100% cab franc is at his peak right now and is showing beautifully the ripe black raspberry, black cherry, a bit of cassis too, a mouth filling lifted by a good acidity.

Chalky stones fused with dry, dark, understated fruit. Lovely, balanced wine, but lacking a little life at the end of the palate.
