Deligeroy "La Petite Marquise" Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé Top Pick!
Deligeroy "La Petite Marquise" Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé

Wine Enthusiast: "This pale rosé sparkling wine is brightly crisp. With its attractive red currants and berryies cut with intense acidity, this young, tense and fruity wine is ready to drink. (RV)" (5/2018) K&L Notes: A wine with tiny, long-lasting bubbles, Deligeroy's Crémant de Loire Rosé is a lovely gleaming pink color with a delicate, nervy nose and aromas of fresh red fruit. It's lively on the attack and has enticing aromatic intensity and brightness. Well balanced in the mouth, this sparkler is enhanced by a fresh but subtle finish. The wine is stored for at least 12 months on r... Read More »

2015 Domaine des Ruettes Saumur-Champigny Rouge (Previously $13)

Surprisingly serious for a sub-$15 bottle of Cabernet Franc. Concentrated aromas of black and red fruits with dried herbs and hints of tobacco spice. Good earthiness but on the more on the subdued side and nice tannin on the finish. An overachieving entry level wine.

2015 Domaine du Petit Clocher Anjou Rouge

Anjou has always been known for its wonderful white wines, yet red wine production in the region is also prominent. The 2015 vintage was a huge success in the Loire Valley, and the Cabernet Franc displays purity and vibrancy like never before.

2016 Bernard Baudry "Les Granges" Chinon

From one of the appellation's most outstanding producers, imported by the inimitable Kermit Lynch, who says: "Not only does he have the talent to make delicious and consistent wines, vintage to vintage, but he is also fortunate enough to have vineyard land that showcases many of the varied soil types of the appellation."

2016 Joël Taluau "Expression" Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil

Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, which are unmarred by the intrusion of oak. He was also the first producer in the appellation to begin domaine bottling. These days, Joel makes wines with the help of his son-in-law, Thierry Foltzenlogel. Their "Expression" comes from vines up to 35 years old, planted on a hillside with clay and limestone. The terroir is perfect for a youthful expression of Cabernet Franc that's immediately drinkable and fresh, with... Read More »

2015 La Source du Ruault Saumur-Champigny Rouge Top Pick!
2015 La Source du Ruault Saumur-Champigny Rouge

I first met vigneron Jean-Noël Millon while attending an organic wine fair in the South of France. The wines were impressive, so we arranged to meet on my trip through the Loire a couple of months later. A visit to the winery led to a trip through the ancient cellar, which had been carved from the chalky stone below (known as tuffeau) two centuries before. As we progressed from chamber to chamber, it began to feel more like a spelunking expedition. Ancient coins were pressed into the walls by past workers, the old wine press was still intact, even the ol... Read More »

2014 Lagarde "Guarda" Cabernet Franc Lujan de Cuyo

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Chinon-like 2014 Guarda Cabernet Franc had a combination of bell pepper, mint, incense and cigar box that transported me to the Loire Valley. The palate has those fine-grained, sharp tannins and very good freshness. Love it or hate it, this will surely divide people. It should age magnificently." (12/2016) K&L Notes: Produced from vines in the Pedriel sub-zone, this wine absolutely is Cabernet Franc in character, with a combination of a savory and subtly snappy green character aligned with a real richness and velvety mouth feel. Good Chinon comes to mind, which s... Read More »

2004 Domaine Les Pins "Le Clos les Pins" Bourgueil

We’ve been working with Domaine les Pins in Bourgueil for several years now, and the wines continually over-deliver for the money. Domaine les Pins is a family estate and independent vigneron for five generations. Unlike most growers in the region, their family has been producing and bottling their own wines instead of selling to the local cooperative. On our recent visit, vignerons Philippe and Christophe Pitault-Landry were kind enough to dig some older bottles out of the cellar to show us how the wines evolve. I immediately homed in on their two 200... Read More »

2004 Domaine Les Pins "Vieilles Vignes" Bourgueil

They have roughly 30 hectares of Cabernet Franc spread out through the Bourgueil and Saint Nicolas de Bourgueil regions. They practice sustainable farming and each and every vine get singular attention throughout the year. Vines of an average age of 25 years are planted in sandy, clay and gravel soils.

2014 Charles Joguet "Les Petites Roches" Chinon

91 points Wine Spectator: "This is ripe and focused, with a delightful core of cassis and raspberry puree flavors streaming through, flanked by rosemary, bay leaf and lavender notes. Picks up chalky grip steadily through the finish, revealing an echo of black tea. Best from 2018 through 2024. 310 cases imported. (JM)" (7/2017) K&L Notes: From Joguet's best gravelly parcels, this is a dense wine for the appellation. Very ripe red fruits dominate the aroma, and already one perceives some typical animal notes in this full-bodied wine. A cuvée tres gourmand with lots of vinosity that could age.

1995 Joël Taluau "Vieilles Vignes" Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil

Wine Spectator: "This fleshy red shows black cherry, spice and herb flavors with firm tannins. It has good concentration and while it's drinkable now, it should improve." (6/1997) K&L Notes: Joël Taluau is a fabulous grower in St. Nicolas de Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire, unmarred by the intrusion of oak--which he hasn't used in production since 1986. He was also the first producer in the appellation to begin domaine bottling. The Vieilles Vignes, from a single plot of Cabernet Franc planted in 1934, is prized for its power, ... Read More »

2014 Catena Appellation Cabernet Franc San Carlos

Over the past five or so years, Catena has been fine tuning their range, producing wines of more specific origin from their vast vineyard holdings. Originally planted in 2007, these 20 hectares of Cabernet Franc (which Laura Catena notes, is the same acreage that Cheval Blanc has planted to the variety!) represent a significant investment, though not a suprising one given the grape's popularity and proven ability to produce very good wine in the Uco Valley.

A magnificent red. Beautiful encore to the superb 2012. Drink or hold." (6/2017) 94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Winemaker/owner Alejandro Vigil keeps the hits coming with this complex but highly appealing blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

2014 Charles Joguet "Les Varennes du Grand Clos" Chinon (Elsewhere $38)

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Charles Joguet was a sculptor and painter when he took over his family’s vineyards in 1957. He began to bottle his own wine and determined to keep the parcels separate, a practice that paid off, given the family’s prime holdings, like this 11.4-acre parcel at the base of a gravelly hillside. Today, the vines at this site date to 1962 and 1976 and are farmed with organic practices by Kevin Fontaine. They produce a sophisticated Chinon with red-currant briskness and a floral buzz. Luscious and giving, it feels electric, the kind of franc that’s hard to res ...Read More »

Maison Couly-Dutheil is undeniably one of the finest estates of Chinon with eighty acres of prime Chinon vineyards as well as seven hectares of Saumur and Saumur Champigny. The estate's Chinon holdings are impressive indeed as they spread over three distinct Chinon terroirs: Sand and gravel along the Vienne River which produce light and fruit driven wines, siliceous slopes and plateaus which impart a certain finesse and elegance to Chinon; and finally clay and limestone slopes which produce Chinon's most serious and profound wines. In the most successful... Read More »

2016 Catherine et Pierre Breton "Trinch!" Bourgueil

This is an everyday Cabernet Franc from organic and biodynamic growers Pierre and Catherine Breton. (Their name, coincidentally, is also the local word for Cabernet Franc.) Made from their younger vines grown on gravelly soils, this is the perfect introduction to this producer's range--youthful, with bright cherry fruit, spicy black pepper and savory herbs. Delicious!

2013 Keenan Spring Mountain District Cabernet Franc

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of Napa Valley’s most successful Cabernet Francs, Keenan’s 2013 Cabernet Franc, is 100% estate Cabernet Franc from their holdings on Spring Mountain. Beautiful blueberry and raspberry fruit interwoven with spring flowers jumps from the glass of this wonderfully balanced and elegant, yet authoritative wine. It is rich, medium to full-bodied, but at the same time ethereal and finesse-oriented. This is a great example of Cabernet Franc at its best B intense, but elegant. This should last for at least another decade. (RP)" (12/2015) 93 points Vinous: "The 2013 Cabernet Franc ...Read More »

A thought-provoking wine that makes you think. Glorious. Drink now or hold for ages." (5/2016) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2012 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard almost made me fall from my chair. It is the expression of elegance and austerity coupled with strong minerality. It is mostly Cabernet Franc from a very chalky vineyard in Gualtallary at 1,430 meters altitude that fermented together with a ...Read More »

2015 Jacky Blot Domaine de la Butte "Mi-Pente" Bourgueil

This is Jacky's "Grand Cru," if you will. This is picked from vines which are planted mid slope where the top soil is thin and the vine's roots hit the limestone almost immediately. In a really good year he might harvest 20 hectoliters per hectare - that is not a lot! The wine spends roughly 18 months in barrique (50% used/50% used) and is typically the last wine of the vintage to be bottled.

2015 Ausone, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "An utterly perfect wine from Alain Vauthier, the 2015 Château Ausone offers off the hook notes of crème de cassis, black raspberries, toasted spice and dried flowers, with more floral and mineral characteristics developing with time in the glass. Amazingly deep, full-bodied, pure and ethereally textured, with building density and tannin, it’s one of those wines that need to be tasted to be believed. Unfortunately, the production is minuscule (and expensive). A wine that will make your heart rate jump, give it 4-5 years of cellaring and I suspect it will ...Read More »

Established in 1996 by Yves and Arnaud Lambert, Domaine de Saint-Just produces a variety of traditional Saumur wines from white to sparkling to red. They are situated in the village of Saint Just-sur-Dive, near Saint Cyr en Bourg, where the sandstone, clay and limestone soils impart a distinctive chalky mineral quality to the wines.

The Saumur Rouge is made in a soft, approachable style meant to be enjoyed young and fresh accompanied by food.

Approachable now. (JM)" (2/2018) K&L Notes: Home to the oldest vines of Charles Jouguet, the Clos de la Dioterie is a single vineyard that faces northeast. Naturally limited to an average yield of 30hl/ha, this is the last parcel harvested each vintage. Aged in 1-3 year old barrels for 12-15 months.

There is plenty of fruit intensity and richness, but the wine remains light on its feet, aromatically expressive and profoundly beautiful. Readers should expect a relatively understated Clos Saint Julien built on persistence more than heft.
