2015 Le Coeur de la Reine Gamay Touraine

From a 4.5 hectare plot of vines which average 30 years of age and planted in flint and clay soils. All hand harvested, vinified in 100% stainless steel tanks along with about a week of carbonic maceration. Bright fruits with spice and fresh palate feel. This is a fantastic wine for those mixed meat grill outs, a dream with salmon and a perfect pairing with an array of Asian foods.

2014 Domaine de la Noblaie "Le Temps des Cerises" Chinon

Jancis Robinson: "Organic farming. Intense crimson. Peppery, crunchy dark-red fruit, just a little smoky. A fine texture - silky but dry. Gentle and fresh, subtle.

2012 Charles Joguet "Clos de la Dioterie" Chinon

Winemaker notes: "The nose, while seemingly austere at first, rapidly starts to read of a medley of black fruits (blackberries, blackcurrant...) and hints of pepper. The structure is ample, full, with aromas of licorice and kirsch, supported by a beautiful minerality. La Dioterie reveals a very precise mineral structure and it originates from both its very old vines and its northeasterly facing clay-limestone terroir..."

2014 Pierre et Catherine 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!

2014 Domaine de la Chevalerie "Diptyque" Bourgueil

Certified organic since 2009, this domaine has been in the hands of the Caslot family since 1640, long before there was any other way of farming. Today, Stéphanie and her brother Emmanuel run the estate. There are over 80 acres of vines on the property. These vineyards are always harvested below 40 hectoliters per hectare (the legal permitted maximum yield is 55 hl/ha). The wines are made with indigenous yeast and usually bottled without fining or filtration. They are deliciously meaty, dense, and astonishingly age-worthy Loire Cabernet Francs.

Super fresh with lots of red spice and textural mineral. Lighter in color and body but with really nice focus and drive. I prefer to open this and decant for about an hour so the purity of fruit can open up and really shine. We were first introduced to the wines of Eric Cottat a few years Back. He was brought to our attention by one of our long-time friends and winemakers in Sancerre and we brought in a small amount as that was all we were allowed to take at the time.

The Château itself is an impressive sight, with its 18th-century Mansard roof and octagonal tower topped by a boar-headed weathercock, from which the domaine takes its name--a hureau is an old, solitary wild boar.

Wine Enthusiast: "Stalky and tannic, this wine's structure is balanced by red berry-fruit flavors. It is smoky, typical of Cabernet Franc, giving a young character that should broaden out. Drink this fruity while structured wine now, or better from 2016.

2013 Domaine de Rocfontaine Saumur Champigny

Rocfontaine's Saumur Champigny rouge is sourced from 15-20 year-old Cabernet Franc vines planted in calcareous clay. Grapes are hand-harvested, and the individually managed lots are fermented quickly to extract a generous fruit profile without hard tannins. The result is a fine Loire red, which happens to be wonderfully drinkable and food-friendly in its youth.

2014 Philippe Tessier "Le Point du Jour" Cheverny Rouge

The nose is teeming with loads of red fruit up top and a slightly denser core of blue fruits underneath. The chalk of the soil comes through on the mid-palate while the classy fruit texture of the Pinot Noir envelops a silky tannin structure which leads into a tasty finish that lingers on the palate for quite some time. This is definitely a denser and more concentrated version of the regular Cheverny Rouge and would greatly benefit with about three years of bottle aging, or a good hour of decanting.

J.M. Jean-Maurice Raffault’s famed Chinon estate is now run by his son Rodolphe. The family has been vignerons in Chinon since 1693 and the estate now comprises 40 hectares spread over 6 communes. Raffault prefers to harvest his cabernet Franc as late as possible and then vinifies each parcel separately. The fermentation process can last up to a month and he incorporates a daily pump over for maximum extraction of flavor and color. Then the wines get to rest in Bordeaux casks inside his 54 degree limestone cellar while the magic happens.

Pithon-Paille "Grololo" Vin de Pays

Groslot is a minor grape variety in the Loire, but a historical one in Anjou. It has characteristics of lush fruit and light tannins. A "non-vintage" but entirely from the 2014 harvest, the 20 to 30-year-old vines planted in slate produce a uniquely ripe and mouth-filling red wine. The wine was bottled after the wine spent 10 months in 3 to 7-year-old (neutral) oak barrels. A fun play between spice, fruit and warm mineral.
