2015 Domaine Les Pins "Les Rochettes" Bourgueil

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is structured young Bourgueil, with its stalky dry fruits and spicy character. The fruit is ripe with good potential for aging as the cedar character subsides and the generous fruit takes over. Drink from 2018. *Editors' Choice* (RV)" (1/2017) K&L Notes: A rich ruby red with notes of violets and red berry fruits, this Cabernet Franc is nicely layered on the palate with brightness running throughout and just a touch of smoke mixed in with some purple fruits. Soft waves of mineral with a nice soft tannin make this a true delight to drink. Domaine les Pins has been... Read More »

Deligeroy Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé Top Pick!
Deligeroy Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé

Wine Spectator: "A soft sparkler, featuring cherry, peach and strawberry notes, with a pillowy finish. (JM, Web—2013)" K&L Notes: A wine with tiny, long-lasting bubbles, Deligeroy's Cremant de Loire Rosé is a lovely gleaming pink, enticing with a delicate, nervy nose and aromas of fresh red fruit. It's lively on the attack and has lovely 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 racks in freestone cellars before disgorging to make incomparably fine bubbles. The fr... Read More »

2015 Domaine des Ruettes Saumur-Champigny Rouge (Previously $13) Top Pick!
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 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.

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."

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.

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 (known as tuffeau) below two centuries before. As we progressed from chamber to chamber, it began to feel more a like a spelunking expedition. Ancient coins were pressed into the walls by past workers, the old wine press was still intact, even the ... Read More »

2014 Charles Joguet "Les Petites Roches" Chinon

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.

1991 Joel Taluau "Vieilles Vignes" 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, 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, depth and grace. This flagship wine is meant to age, and the large format bottle will have helped to preserve freshness. Enjoy now!

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.

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.

2012 Bodegas Aleanna Cabernet Franc "El Enemigo" Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Argentina

98 points James Suckling: "Incredible depth of aromas of black mushrooms, wet earth, and dark fruits. Full body, super silky tannins and a refined finish. It lasts for minutes on the palate. 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 »

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 »

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 »

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.

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 »

2014 Charles Joguet "Clos de la Dioterie" Chinon

92 points Wine Spectator: "Solid, with a broad, fleshy feel to the mix of smoldering bay leaf, tobacco and warm dark olive notes that meld steadily with a core of gently steeped red currant and damson plum fruit. 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.

The 80% whole clusters add aromatic nuance and bring out the more floral/savory side of Franc. Lifted and delicate in feel, the 2016 is another winner from Habit. (AG)" (9/2017)

2015 Ausone, St-Émilion (Pre-Arrival) Top Pick!
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 »

The 42-acre estate that surrounds the winery is CCOF certified organic and the Ehlers team practices sustainable and biodynamic viniculture.

This fabulous and exciting elixir is a equal-part blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot aged in equal parts Gamba and Darnajou, all new French oak. A stunning nose of forest floor, blueberry, blackberry, mulberry and spring flowers soars from the glass of this inky purple wine.
