The 2017 Saumur-Champigny Tuffe is 100% Cabernet Franc done entirely in tank. A rush of dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice, menthol, rose petal, juniper berry and dried herbs makes a strong opening statement. The 2017 has more than enough fruit depth to balance its more savory qualities. Drink it over the next handful of years. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020)

100% Loire Valley Cabernet Franc. No oak. Fermented in Stainless Steel tanks. Rich dark cherry and cassis fruit aromas with herbal, wild mushroom and tobacco notes. Full dark fruit flavors with herbal and leather hints. Touch of juniper berry on the full and long finish. Great balance between fruit and organics.

Lovely - tart, dry and compact. Mis-paired with super delicious fish and chips and was surprisingly complimentary.

Fresh and vibrant fruit of Blackberry and Lavender and light briny traces of spices. Uncanny perfumy aromatics that linger on the finish too. 100% Cab Franc.
