2019 Domaine les Pins "Les Rochettes" Bourgueil Rosé
Top Pick!
Wine Enthusiast: "This wine from a family-owned estate is rich and full, with packed red fruits. The denseness contrasts with the welcome acidity and freshness. It's a rosé that will be best with food. (RV)" (07/2020) K&L Notes: This is a fresh, snappy berry-driven rosé with delicate floral notes. It's bright and crisp, delicious with or without food. Domaine les Pins has been family run for five generations. They are a small artisanal producer that oversees every stage of the production from start to finish. They have roughly 30 hectares of Cabernet F...

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 ...

Joel B. Payne writes: "Although he still owns half of Couly-Dutheil, Pierre Couly was thrown out by his brother Jacques when the latter took control of the family business ten years ago. It is not quite fratricide, but it was particularly odd because both were near the age of retirement when it happened. With three hectares from Domaine Farou, his wife’s estate, Pierre and his son Bertrand started over. A decade later, they now have 20, exclusively on the plateau above Chinon. Including the grapes that they buy from their winemaker, father and son now pr...

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...

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 the Coteaux du Layon (home of one of the region's great dessert wines).

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 37 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...

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...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Cabernet Franc from Rutherford shows loamy soil and underbrush notes, red and blue fruits, medium body, a slightly compact mouthfeel, a dark ruby color and good overall personality. (RP)" (12/2016)
Price: Hidden

96 points Vinous: "The 2008 Cabernet Franc Duemani is extraordinary. Silky tannins support a core of beautifully delineated dark fruit, grilled herbs, flowers and espresso in this breathtakingly elegant, polished wine. Expressive, articulated aromatics are woven throughout, adding lift and a sense of freshness. The wine shuts down quickly in the glass and appears headed for a period of dormancy, but it is impossible to miss its genius. (AG)" (08/2011)

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.

93 points Vinous: "The 2018 Cabernet Franc is dark, rich and super-expressive. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, leather, licorice and a whole range of floral/savory notes show tremendous depth. Despite having been bottled just prior to this tasting, the 2018 is incredibly appealing. The combination of intense fruit and the classically-leaning style favored by Lieu Dit yields a Franc of real distinction. In the early going, the sulfured version is a bit more expressive than the Sans Soufre, which is unusual, as the opposite is usually true. (AG)" (09/2019) 92 ...

Field Recordings is a small Paso Robles, Calif., winery that was founded by Andrew Jones, who began his wine journey as a nursery vine grower and has stepped foot in nearly all the vineyards of the Central Coast of California.

95-96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "(Sleeping Lady) This vineyard Yountville continues to produce brilliant wines, and the 2017 Cabernet Franc Sleeping Lady is another one to add to the list. Offering a Cheval Blanc-like bouquet of cassis, crushed flowers, spice, and cedary incense, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and a seductive, elegant, sexy texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It shines just as much for its complexity as its texture and is going to evolve gracefully for 15-20 years. There are a scant 80 ...
Price: Hidden

96 points John Gilman: "The bouquet is unmistakably Cheval, with scents of black cherries, bell pepper, dark chocolate, menthol, tobacco, herbs, espresso and vanillin oak wafting from the glass. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep, black fruity, and totally dense at the center, with excellent structure and delineation, great length and grip, and a fair bit of ripe, well-integrated tannin framing the finish. This is very elegant and only medium-full on the palate today (in notable contrast to its thick, luxurious and voluptuous youth), with great ...

This wine is 100% cabernet franc. Sustainable practices are used in the vineyard, and the fruit is mechanically harvested and completely destemmed. Fermentation and ageing takes place in stainless steel temperature-controlled vats.

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 cellari...



2016 La Jota Howell Mountain Cabernet Franc

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Franc Howell Mountain (100% Cabernet Franc) gives up exuberant bramble fruits, baked raspberries, mulberries and wild blueberries with suggestions of pencil shavings, kirsch, rose hip tea and tobacco leaf. Full-bodied and with a very firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins, it has wonderful perfume and depth, finishing long and mineral laced. Drink through 2044.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromatic, as are all of Leah Jørgensen's wines, this weaves a bit of smoke through a mix of sweet and bitter herbs and red fruits—cranberries and pomegranate and stewed cherries. Still young and pulling those flavors together, it builds upon balanced and complex components that trail into a lingering finish, reflecting far more care and polish than most wines at this price. Give this another year or two before opening that first bottle. (PG)" (04/2020)

90 points Vinous: "This is a modern reference for everyday value in Chinon (and nearly three-quarters of Alliet’s production). Aged nine months in cement tank. Lovely aromas of violet, spice, clay and lots of blue fruit. On the palate, juicy plum and black cherry, a touch of herb and green olive, gripping tannins and a cool crushed stone finish.

Winery notes: Lo-Fi is a partnership between two lifelong friends who believe in hand crafted honest wines that are made for every day drinking. We believe in neutral barrels, native yeasts, little to no sulfur additions, and no adjustment of pH. We love whole cluster fermentation. We adore carbonic maceration . We embrace a nothing added, nothing taken away philosophy that gives birth to wines that are young, vibrant and alive. Hand harvested and organically grown; 50% de-stemmed.

98 points Vinous: "A wine of breathtaking beauty, the 2016 Paleo Rosso possesses off the charts vertical intensity. Sweet floral and spiced notes soar out of the glass in a stunning wine endowed with fabulous depth in all of its dimensions. Cedar, mocha, rose petal, red plum and menthol are bright and beautifully sculpted. Paleo Rosso shows just how profound Cabernet Franc can be on the Tuscan Coast. This is a superb edition of the wine that, in my view, is the Macchiole flagship. The 2016 saw 30-35 days on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation ...

95 points Vinous: "From one of the most prized vineyards in Bourgueil, with soil similar to Clos Rougeard's famed Le Bourg vineyard: clay over tuffeau limestone. This elegant Cabernet Franc has the bearing of a Saint-Émilion, for which it might be mistaken. Deep purple-red in color. Seductive and silky, the complex nose is full of blackberry, white pepper, leather, chocolate and wet clay. Graceful and balanced on the palate and brightly juicy, with supple tannins and a cool mineral finish that goes on and on. (JW)" (07/2020)

95 points Vinous: "From one of the most prized vineyards in Bourgueil, with 40- to 60-year- old vines in silex soils. Aged 24 months in barrique, this is a serious, elegant Cabernet Franc. Savory nose of red fruit, tobacco and touch of vegetal noble. Bloody, meaty texture in the mouth, as well as flavors of baked cherry and hints of black olive. Linear, with fine tannins and a fresh, energetic, lively finish. This has the muscle to age a long time. (JW)" (07/2020)

Black cherries, savory earth, currants, and forest floor notes all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, elegant red blend that should be snatched up by readers.

Ian Brand was the San Francisco Chronicle's 2018 Winemaker of the Year From the SF Chronicle's review of the 2016 Bates Ranch Cabernet Franch: "Bates Ranch is in the fascinating Redwood Retreat neighborhood of Gilroy, sits at the southern end of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
