91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This young, fruity wine comes from vines owned by the Pitault-Landry family. It has an edge of tannins and freshly spicy fruits. Smoky, perfumed and packed with berry flavors, the wine will develop further. Drink from 2022. (RV)" (07/2020) 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 ...

Wine Enthusiast: "This is an attractive, black-fruit-flavored wine. Light tannins and acidity are already well integrated and balanced with the fruits. The wine is ready to drink. (RV)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: Established over 50 years ago, the 4th generation of the Denis family now runs this operation. Julien is the winemaker, Stephane in charge of the viticulture and Vincent oversees the administration and sales. Over the last decades the property has grown from 5 to 80 hectares that stretch across the appellation including some very select parcels in...

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. " (06/1997) K&L Notes: Joël Taluau was 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...

Joël Taluau was a fabulous grower in St-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil known for making some of the purest expressions of Cabernet Franc in the Loire. All his hand harvested cuvées are based on vine age and soil composition, and the wines are fermented and aged in stainless steel with a light fining and no filtration before bottling.

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.

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 family run for five generations. They are a small artisanal producer that oversees every stage of production from start to finish themselves. They have roughly 30 hectares of Cabernet Franc spread out through the Bourgueil and Saint Nicolas de Bo...

92 points James Suckling: "A soft and velvety red with reserve and precision. Medium body, medium tannins and a flavorful finish. Delicious and focused. Drink now or hold." (02/2019) 92 points Vinous: "Dark red-ruby. Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, violet and peppery herbs, the latter no doubt partly due to the use of 15% whole clusters for the fermentation; winemaker Alejandro Vigil noted that the stems were fully ripe in this vineyard in 2016). Tactile, juicy and suave, with its seamless flavors of blueberry, violet and bitter chocolate showing cons...

2017 La Source du Ruault Saumur-Champigny
Top Pick!
When Jean Noel Millon took over winemaking and farming at his family's estate in 1998, he represented the seventh generation to do so. The 10-hectare farm is certified organic and Millon complements the soil with herbal teas and homemade composts to strengthen the vines' natural defenses. Winery tasting notes: "It is the emblematic wine of the estate with its aromatic expression of red fruit. The palate is crunchy and juicy with ripe, fresh fruit which gives it good drinkability." *organic*

Watkins Family is an obscure and, naturally, a family-owned little winery in the Sonoma Valley, focusing on mountain-grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Randall Watkins also makes wine at a venerable estate that's a little better known to fans of classic, mountain-grown California Cabernet from an older school: the renewed Laurel Glen Vineyard. The Bugay Vineyard sits above the fog line atop the beautiful Mayacamas Mountains between the towns of Santa Rosa and Calistoga.

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Made from 75% Cabernet Franc and 25% Merlot, the 2008 Le Dome comes from a tiny site not far from Angélus and is made by Jonathan Maltus. This beauty boasts a deep ruby, opaque color as well as a seductive, forward style its black and blue fruits, lavender, spring flowers, and forest floor aromas and flavors. Incredibly elegant on the palate, with medium to full body, sweet tannins, not a hard edge to be found, and a great finish, it’s fully mature today (and drinking beautifully!) but will cruise for another decade in cold cellar...

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.

90 points Vinous: "Le Temps des Cerises (or “Cherry Time!” as Jérôme jokes) is Domaine de la Noblaie’s everyday Chinon and represents half of their Cabernet Franc production. Bright ruby. Classic fresh and savory Chinon nose, delivering lots of black pepper, tomato and olive. On the palate, thought, it’s plush and fruity, with fleshy plum and ripe cherry, balanced by chalk and more black pepper. Aged five months in stainless steel.

93 points James Suckling: "This is such a delicious cabernet franc with blackberry and floral notes on the nose and palate, which draw you in and invite you to drink. Medium body. Round, creamy tannins and a delicious finish. The use of whole berries really makes this. Drink or hold" (02/2020) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The expressive and elegant 2017 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc has some 8% Malbec in the blend. It's a subtle red with nuance and detail, very harmonious, aromatic, even floral within the spicy character of the variety. The pa...

93 points Vinous: "From one of Baudry’s top limestone sites. Aged 12 months in 2- to 5-year-old barrels, then rests for nine months in cement tanks. Still young and rambunctious, very juicy and full of energy, very like Pinot-like. It’s one of the fruitier Baudry expressions, with lots of black and sour cherry, some blackberry and tomato, and light stoniness on the finish. Give this a year or two and it will pay back your patience. (JW)" (07/2020) K&L Notes: 94-96 pts from Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "This sample was tasted from cement cuve, the wi...

94 points Vinous: "L’Huisserie is full of silex (limestone and flint). Less bright and more autumnal than 2018, offering forest aromas and ripe wild berry. On the palate, lots of ripe plum and blackberry, and on the finish, stony, even a little bloody, with a touch of campfire. Beautifully complex and textured. There’s a good, lean rustic quality to this. Wonderful value for such an accomplished wine. Aged one year in older barrique, then in cement for six months.

92 points Vinous: "A rush of sweet red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange, dark spice and graphite race across the palate in Lieu Dit's 2018 Cabernet Franc Sans Soufre. The 2018 exudes striking purity in its flavors, with a good bit of aromatic intensity from the 33% whole clusters. This is such a beautiful and expressive wine today, even though it was just bottled.

94 points James Suckling: "A spicy and deliciously fresh Cabernet Franc that shows dried herbs, cedar, dried blueberries and lavender. The palate has a soft and velvety mouthfeel, but remains dialed-in with edgy acidity and firm tannins." (03/2019) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pure Cabernet Franc 2017 Pirque Vineyard sticks out like a sore thumb when tasted next to the other wines from Maule with its minty and creamy Maipo Cabernet personality. It comes from a vineyard planted in the 1980s in Pirque at around 700 meters in altitude. Th...

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "It would be easy to mistake this herbally complex, texturally taut and tantalizingly fresh Cabernet Franc for a Loire Valley bottling, which is the inspiration. Aromas of just-ripe boysenberry, green tobacco and wet rocks lead into a tightly woven palate full of crunchy cranberry, chaparral shrubs and lingering carnation. Beware: bottle empties easily. *Editors’ Choice* (MK)" (02/2021)

2016 Bodegas Aleanna "Gran Enemigo" Cabernet Franc Gualtallary Argentina
New!
99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2016 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard transported me back to the classical wines from the Bordeaux of yesteryear, with austerity and with no room for sweetness or creamy texture. This is about chalk and umami, salty and tasty, with the clout and wilderness of Gualtallary; its electric freshness and fine tannins; the expression of Cabernet Franc (with some Merlot) in the poor, stony and limestone-rich soils from the high-altitude vineyards; and the intensity this altitude provides, as there...

2013 Bevan "Sugarloaf Mountain Vineyard" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The last two 2013s I tasted included the 2013 Proprietary Red Sugarloaf Mountain. 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. Another offering of great intensity, with voluptuous texture and lavish, almost extravagant fruit richness, this pure, rich and incredibly well-made wine is yet...

Winery notes: "Cabernet Franc (Loire clones) sourced from a 30-year-old vineyard on the East Side of Seneca Lake, planted on gravel, clay & shale. Harvest followed by gentle foot-trodding and a 10-day cold soak prior (partial Carbonic Maceration). 50% Whole Cluster, fermented with a combination of Indigenous Yeasts, Burgundy yeast & Rhone yeast (all separate tanks/ferments) for nearly 2 months in open-top fermenters, 2x daily punch-downs. Moved to old barrique for malolactic fermentation & 8-month elevage, bottled unfined & unfiltered."

In keeping with the growing trend of many fine boutique producers in northern California, Dewey's makes low-intervention, small-lot, single-site expressions from some of the Golden State's unheralded yet exceptional vineyards. Winemaker's notes: "In 2018 we jumped at the opportunity to work with a couple tons of cab franc from Barsotti. The grapes were fermented native, 100% whole-cluster, and punched down twice a day with two bare feet. We pressed gently to a combination of neutral oak and stainless steel barrels. Other than sulfur the wine received no ...

91 points Vinous: "The 2017 has more complexity and depth than the 2018. Selection from 60- to 70-year-old vines, aged 18 months in cement tank. Classic nose of violet, blackberry, black pepper and even a touch of jalapeño. In the mouth, this is very straight and savory, featuring black cherry, black olive, bay leaf and layers of dark minerality. The finish is attractive and long, full of smoke and tobacco leaf.

91 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "This cuvée brings us to the soils of Bourgueil, another entry-level cuvée analogous to La Source. It used to be called La Coudraye, but the name has been changed now to reflect the sourcing of fruit from a number of other parcels alongside La Coudraye, including three lieux-dits named Les Sables, Les Pins and Les Perrières with mostly sandy soils. I have to own up to an error in my previous tasting note, as Côte 50 refers to the altitude of these various parcels, which sit on the côte at an altitude of 50 metres ...

Baudry's Les Granges may be his workhorse Chinon but it always lands as one of the sexiest and most fulfilling Chinons released each year. From vines aged 30+ years all planted over sand and gravelly soils, this is bright, refreshing and exotic. All fermentation and elevage are done in concrete tanks preserving that vibrant fruit. An outstanding value from one of the leaders in Chinon.

Bid on this 6-bottle lot of 2013 Del Dotto Napa Valley Cabernet Franc. According to Robert Parker: "One of the bright, shining stars of Napa is David Del Dotto’s winery.
