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

92-94 points Winedoctor.com: "This is Jérôme's domaine-level cuvée, and as he pours this sample taken from cuve a few days before this tasting I ask myself if their is any chance it will be as good as his brilliant 2017 Temps de Cerise. As it happens, it is. This is simply beautiful, filled with aromatic dark fruits, dressed with touches of blackcurrant and black olive. The palate is simply exquisite, pure and fresh, very firm, with lots of very primary character, great fruit density, and an impressively sinewy texture. For this to match the 2017 suggest ...

2018 Domaine de la Noblaie "Goutte de Rose" Chinon Rosé

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 ...

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.

The superb bouquet jumps from the glass in a complex and very pure blend of dark berries, cherries, tree bark, cigar ash, dark soil tones, a discreet framing of cedar and a bit of upper register menthol.

2018 Field Recordings Blanc de Franc Paso Robles

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.

It is from 20-year-old vines in El Cepillo, one of the cooler places of San Carlos in Valle de Uco. Furthermore, 2016 was a particularly cool year, so the wine is really a "cool climate" example.

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.
