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.

2016 Eric Cottat Sancerre Rouge Top Pick!
2016 Eric Cottat Sancerre Rouge

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. Eric is a one-man show and only produces a small amount of wines each vintage for family, friends, and close customers, and then sells the rest of his fruit off to other eager producers in the region. Last year I had the opportunity to pay Mr. Cottat a visit and quickly became enamored by how he goes about doin... Read More »

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 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.

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 »

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."

2014 Domaine du Vieil Orme Malbec-Cabernet Franc Touraine Rouge

The family-owned domaine dates back to 1804, located in a tiny Loire village named St-Julien-de Chédon. Since 2009, Laurent Benoist has been at the helm, focusing his efforts on sustainable farming and pure, terroir-driven wines. As a region, Touraine has the flexibility to plant a wide range of varieties, so it’s different from the more formal areas such as Vouvray, which only allows Chenin Blanc, or Sancerre, which only allows Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. In Touraine, they can grow Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, ... 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 »

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 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.

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 »

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!

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.

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.

2016 François Chidaine Touraine Rouge

Chidaine is one of the top producers in Montlouis-sur-Loire, Vouvray and now Touraine with this spin-off project. The Rouge is an equall parts blend of Cabernet Franc, Cot (Malbec) and Pineau d'Aunis. Full of fleshy red and black fruit with peppery spice it is delightfully pleasing. The 2016 vintage was really low yielding due to frost, so this great value will disappear quickly. (Keith Mabry, Loire Valley Buyer)

1995 Clos Rougeard Saumur Champigny
Bid on this bottle of 1995 Clos Rougeard Saumur Champigny. The Foucault brothers Nady and Charlie are the owners of Clos Rougeard, and in France, at least, their wines have certainly achieved Cult-like status with every three-star restaurant in Paris hustling to get a small allocation. Not surprisingly, hardly anyone in American has even heard of Clos Rougeard. Well, we're here to change all that. This estate has been in the family for several generations. The Foucault brothers tend exceptional vineyards, harvest at small yields, vinify in barrel, let the wines age for a couple of years in a frigid cellar and bottle without filtration. The result (even in "challenging" years like 1999) is a few of the top red wines of the Loire Valley and in the top of France as a whole. Charles Joguet, the great winemaker of Chinon, once said: "there are two suns. One shines outside for everybody. The second shines in the Foucaults' cellar." 100% cabernet franc and designed for all manner of food.
