2014 Domaine Les Pins "Les Rochettes" Bourgueil

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors' Choice and #85 of Top 100 of 2015* This rich, structured wine is packed with both firm tannins and rich red fruits.

2014 Bernard Baudry "Les Grézeaux" 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." The Grézeaux vineyard is rich in gravelly soils, with vines that average 65 years of age.

1996 Joël Taluau Vieilles Vignes St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Impressively saturated ruby-red color. Complex aromas of black raspberry, kirsch, Valrhona chocolate, smoke and gunflint. Tactile and quite concentrated; really dense with extract. Ripe acidity gives the deep flavors lovely clarity. A real fruit essence: the wine somewhat chewy tannins and alcohol are hidden by fruit.

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.

2015 Château Yvonne "L'Île Quatre Sous" Saumur-Champigny

This 100-percent Cabernet Franc was farmed biodynamically and organically in one of the world's best growing spots for the grape.

2013 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.

2015 Pascal Janvier "Cuvée du Rosier" Coteaux du Loir Rouge

Vigneron by way of butcher, Pascal Janvier is one of those souls destined to make wine, despite himself. Fortunately, he wised up at age thirty and yielded to his inevitable fate. Today, Pascal and his wife Dominique farm a total of nine hectares in the department of the Sarthe in the Val du Loir, a tiny, stony hillside along the Loir River (a tributary of the Loire River), north of Vouvray that is also the most northerly--and coldest--of the regions of the Loire.

2015 Château d'Epiré "Clos de la Cerisaie" Anjou Rouge

"A cabernet franc that showcases some of the higher tannic potential of the grape varietal but in a low-alcohol style that works perfectly for hotter weather and heavier dishes. Ruby in color this wine has a nose of red fruit including red plum, red currant and raspberry; there is also violet and a handful of fall green vegetable which lays underneath cedar and a dash of vanilla baking spice. On the palate grippy, earthy, medium-plus tannin shows on the attack ahead of the muted red fruit which emerges mid-palate towards a chalky finish. The wine is med... Read More »

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.

Ripe cherries, fabulous fruit quality but not simple. Deep and long and just a little chewy but rounded. 17.5/20 points (JH)" (1/2016) K&L Notes: This is Jacky's "Grand Cru," if you will.

The Caslot family ferments their wines without added yeast and ages them for two or more years in 400- to 500-liter oak casks.

2012 Le Rocher des Violettes Gamay de Touraine

Only 300 cases produced, and it just happens to be the first vintage of Gamay by Xavier. I absolutely love Gamay from this region of the world. It has a rich depth of color and fruit structure, good spicy aromatics but light and easy to drink without being overly serious. Try it with grilled sausages or an herb-marinated skirt steak.

And while he is better known for his phenomenal Chenin Blancs, he also makes delightful reds from Cabernet, Cabernet Franc and Gamay.
