90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Anjou Villages appellation is warm enough to ripen both versions of Cabernet, Franc and Sauvignon. This rich while balanced wine is good proof of that with its ripe black fruits and acidity. It wouldn't be Loire without the smoky, lightly stalky backdrop that will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2020. (RV)" (09/2018) K&L Notes: Established over 50 years ago, the 4th generation of the Denis family now runs this operation.

2018 Domaine de la Noblaie "Goutte de Rose" Chinon Rosé
Top Pick!
93 points Winedoctor.com: "This is 100% Cabernet Franc, vinified in stainless steel, and it is already in bottle, very sensibly under screwcap. It kicks off with a beautifully fresh and dusty nose, showing subtle peach and strawberry fruits, lightly dusted with minerals. The palate feels appropriately fresh, tense, pure and cool, with a polished style, an ebullient fruit character streaked with mineral and acid veins. It closes with a very fine and peppery flourish in the finish. All in all a very attractive rosé. From my first Loire 2018 report." (02/2...

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 hadn'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 in 1934, is prized for its power, depth and grace. This flagship wine is meant to age, and this one is really coming into its own.

Wine Enthusiast: "This pale rosé sparkling wine is brightly crisp. With its attractive red currants and berryies cut with intense acidity, this young, tense and fruity wine is ready to drink. (RV)" (05/2018) K&L Notes: A wine with tiny, long-lasting bubbles, Deligeroy's Crémant de Loire Rosé is a lovely gleaming pink color with a delicate, nervy nose and aromas of fresh red fruit. It's lively on the attack and has enticing aromatic intensity and brightness. Well balanced in the mouth, this sparkler is enhanced by a fresh but subtle finish. The wine is ...

2014 La Source du Ruault "Clos de la Côte" Saumur-Champigny Rouge
Top Pick!
"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 o...

2018 Domaine de la Noblaie "Le Temps des Cerises" Chinon

93 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "Jérôme has proven himself with this cuvée, which in recent vintages has been a stellar 'entry-level' wine. The 2018 vintage does not disappoint in this regard. Tasted twice. From the first bottling, the bottle opened the day before my visit, this has a softer and more floral nose, but presents a delicate, pencil-fine style on the palate, with a lightly chalky structure. From the second bottling, which was completed just ten weeks after the first, the bottle opened on the day of tasting, this presents a darker and...

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.

Producer notes: "Excellent summer wine, this rosé is an ideal companion for your barbecue or salads. Made from Grolleau (40%), Cabernet (40%), and Gamay (20%). A rosé of intense pink/orange color, with glints of purple, it reveals an explosion of ripe red fruits on the nose (cherry and raspberry) accompanied by delicate floral notes. On the palate it has remarkable presence, both full and fresh, persistent fruit on the finish."

93 points Chris Kissack, Winedoctor.com: "From the kaolin clay terroir on the slopes above the domaine, this cuvée was bottled in April 2019. Aromatically it opens with the scents of black olives, dark cherries and blackcurrant, sweet and perfumed. This confidence comes through on the palate, albeit with a pencil-fine definition to the wine's admirable substance, in a very pure style, with notes of acacia, hawthorn and dark, floral hedgerow fruits. There are little notes of cigar box and pencil shaving, and underneath there lies a fine backbone of chalky...

98 points Vinous: "The 2016 Paleo Rosso is a total stunner. Explosive and intensely floral, with tremendous aromatic intensity, the 2016 exudes class from the very first taste. Grilled herbs, crushed rose, peach, espresso and raspberry jam are some of the many notes that flesh out. The 2016 closes down quickly in the glass, which is likely a very good sign for its longer term prospects. The purity of the fruit alone is striking. Despite its considerable richness, the 2016 retains freshness, lift and exceptional finesse. The personality of pure Cabernet F...

Winery note: "The vintage Vieilles Vignes comes from vines aged over 35 and up to 80 years old, planted on clay-limestone soils. These are tannic wines with aromas of very ripe red fruits: depth, complexity and elegant tannins ensure a long life. They are to consume, preferably, 4 to 5 years after their bottling and will age about ten years according to your cellar."

At Calcu, they are convinced that the next big thing in Chile is Cabernet Franc. God bless 'em if they think that Cabernet Franc will ever explode in popularity the way that Argentine Malbec recently has, or that Pinot Noir has in the past decade. Nonetheless, we love Cabernet Franc, and this one shows great varietal character with some unexpected richness as well. Calcu was one of the first Chilean wineries to obtain the Wines of Chile sustainability certification.

From winemaker Andrew Jones comes this esoteric delight, a lightly sparkling (and lightly colored) rosé of Cabernet Franc made in the pétillant naturel style. Timing is everything with this wine as it must be bottled and capped with just the right amount of remaining natural sugars to continue fermentation (thus, creating captured carbonation). It's not an easy trick to pull off, but when it goes right, it really goes right.

Direct from the estate! Made from 100-year-old Cabernet Franc vines, growing on unique limestone and clay soil, this wine is dense and extremely complex. A magnificent example of a fine Loire red from what is arguably Chinon's greatest producer. Great aging potential, too.

Andrew Jones learned to make wine from the ground up. He started as a vine nursery fieldman, planting and planning vineyards for wineries all over California. This gave him first-hand knowledge of nearly every vineyard on the Central Coast and a knack for finding "diamonds in the rough." Meanwhile, he was building friendships with some great California growers, who'd often offer him small lots of their best grapes on the side. From these beginnings he has built a catalog of delicious, affordable wines that hum with personality.

Coming all from the Crocker Vineyard outside of St. Helena and aged 21 months in 80% new French oak, it offers classic Franc blue fruits, purple iris, dried herbs, and hints of chocolate on the nose.
