Domaine du Collier "La Ripaille" Saumur Rouge Cabernet Franc 2012

We adore drinking Clos Rougeard as much as any Loire obsessive, but it's been especially exciting over the last few years to witness the rise of a new guard of producers in Saumur that remain mostly under-the-radar of the wider wine world. Domaine du Collier is the property of young Antoine Foucault, son of the late, great Charly Foucault of Clos Rougeard. 2/3 of his vines are especially old Chenin Blanc, with the rest planted to Cabernet Franc. These are powerful, succulent wines defined by tension and exceptional length.andnbsp; andnbsp;

Renegade Wine dinner series at Rebelle NYC presented by sommelier Patrick Cappiello. Focus was on Cab Franc: 15 wines paired with 5 courses. Posting a few favorites. I lost my notes but remembered really enjoying this and how balanced it was on both the savory/fruit profile as well as the tannin/acid front.
