Good acid. Dry, graphite. Little horse fart on the nose

Barnyard-y funk on the nose and loads of herbs and flowers on the palette. Really surprising and pretty

Quite Bretty on the first night, second night all gone. Bright, juicy, fresh, but lacks some complexity. She's a young one. Would like to revisit. Shows promise.

Decent amount of funk on opening, which blew off after an hour. Bright fruit, mild tannins and a blast of herbs. Everything I want from a Cab Franc.

Medium-body, light tannins, hint of dark cherry and tobacco. Delicious.

Super juicy and fresh Saumur-Champigny. Fermentation and elevage in concrete tank. Concentrated nose of ripe blackberry and raspberry, tobacco leaf, graphite and pencil shavings, fresh violets, an almost bloody savory character, and slightly roasted red bell pepper. On the palate it's softly textured and echoes the nose with a bit of extra graphite mineral intensity. Medium (+) acid, medium (-) to medium body, medium to medium (+) intensity of tannins with a pleasant, fine-grained grip. Nice, quenching Loire Cab Franc that would be great with most anything coming off your grill this summer. Takes well to a slight chill also.
